Former police inspector Abid Boxer, was recently arrested by the Interpol from Dubai airport. The wanted criminal had been on the run for the past 11 years for his involvement in extrajudicial killings, connections with the underworld and land-grabbing allegations.

The former officer had fled to Dubai in 2007 in order to avoid arrest and for fear of being killed by those he had wronged. Authorities had been searching for him ever since but Abid had been keeping a very low profile which helped in his evasion.

Famous stage actress Nargis had also alleged him of attacking her house making her family hostage torturing her and shaving her head and eye-brows.
