Police officials will announce his arrest officially by producing the accused before the media on Friday. Prakash, a driver with jeweller Ajay Kumar Agarwal, drove away with his employer’s Rs 50 lakh cash in Abids police station limits on Wednesday. Agarwal, on the way from home to a bank to deposit the money, stopped by at Triveni Complex to meet a friend and got down, leaving the money behind in the car.

Seizing the opportunity, Prakash, who had been working with Ajay just for three months, drove off with the money.
