According to a statement issued by the Patna Senior Superintendent of Police, a case in this connection was lodged in Patna on March 20 immediately upon receipt of the information. Technical surveillance traced the caller to Surat after which he was caught with the help of Gujarat police and is being brought to Patna, he said.
The caller said his name was Ankit Kumar and though he lived in Laskana near Surat, he was a native of Vaishali district in Bihar.
Interrogations, so far, have not revealed his involvement in any illegal activity, the police added.
