Initially, he stayed in South Extension area and later on, shifted to Sarita Vihar. Since the lockdown, he left that accommodation and was living as a vagabond.

“He further disclosed that he had been arrested earlier in theft cases of Greater Kailash, Malviya Nagar, Safdarjung Enclave and Sarita Vihar. In all cases of thefts committed by him, he had stolen electronic items like laptops, hard disks and mobile phones. But every time after getting bail, he indulged in similar activities,” DCP, South East Delhi, R.P. Meena said.

Aliyu failed to show any document related to his stay in India so he has also been booked under the provisions of Foreigners Act, he added.
