A Nigerian drug convict, John Okoro, who fled from police custody in India last Monday, has been re-arrested.
Okoro, 35, was re-arrested by the Anti-Narcotics Cell (ANC) of Mumbai police.
ANC sources told The Times of India that Okoro was arrested from the Navi Mumbai area, from where he was planning to flee to Mangalore by a private bus.
Police source said Okoro, who resided in Koparkhairane in Navi Mumbai, was arrested in 2014 in a drug case.
The court convicted him for a three-year jail term. Okoro was sent to Nashik central prison after conviction.
