Shetty was nabbed after the efforts of Union government's involvement with the foreign countries and the bilateral ties between the Mumbai crime branch and international security agencies to extradite and deport atleast most wanted criminals.
"Shetty's deportation will give a clear signal to other fugitives holed up in foreign countries that we have developed operational capabilities to conduct an international operation," said Himashu Roy, Joint commissioner of police (crime).
"Two such operations in a foreign country failed. But we did manage to reach very close to him. The arrest of Shetty has boosted our morale. We are more confident in getting not only Pujari but several other criminals," said an officer of the central agency," said sources from Mumbai crime branch.
