Agartala: A 58-year-old man in Tripura, wanted for the last 41 years in a case of theft, has finally been arrested, police said on Saturday.

A permanent arrest warrant was issued against Bachu Kaul, a tea garden worker. Acting on the arrest warrant, the police arrested him on late Friday from the Mekhlipara tea estate area in western Tripura, IANS reported.

“Bachu would be produced in a lower court and we will seek his judicial custody for at least seven days,” a police official said.

Police said that Bachu along with his father Mohan Kaul had stolen a goat in 1978 from West Tripura district’s Ranir Bazar. His father died 18 years ago. Both the father-son had been declared absconders.

“The price of the goat was Rs 45 in 1978 and the proportional value of that goat at the current market price would be over Rs 3,000,” the police official claimed.
