Kapoor was arrested in the Paharganj area of Delhi and is currently in custody, police said at a press conference at Indira Gandhi International Airport. He is accused of selecting premium domestic flights, such as those operated by Air India and Vistara, and flying on 110 days last year.

Police used flight manifests and CCTV footage from Delhi and Amritsar airports to track Kapoor. They believe the thefts were to fund his gambling habit.

An alleged co-conspirator, a jeweler accused of helping Kapoor sell the stolen goods, has also been arrested.
