Speaking to rediff.com on phone from Dehradun she said that the accused had been living under a false name in a small locality about 25 km from the state capital.
"Mansur was picked up by the Mumbai police 4 days back from Mumbai and they had come searching for relevant material. He had been living under a false identity," she said.
