Police in Buldhana district, Maharashtra, say Omprakash is an alcoholic and always dreamed of living a rich luxurious life. They recovered 17 mobile phones and Rs.450,000 from him.
Complaints about Omprakash were made in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Bhusawal and Pune, so the police formed a team to lay a trap for the man.
Police have also arrested a jeweller from Wardha to whom Omprakash sold stolen gold ornaments. They are also questioning one of the girlfriends from Nagpur that Omprakash met through Facebook, and to whom he gave a valuable gift.
