Amar Jyoti Kalita, the prime accused of the Guwahati mob molestation case, is likely to be produced before a court in Assam on Thursday.
Kalita, who was nabbed in Varanasi on Monday, was handed over to Assam police on transit remand.
The transit remand from Varanasi CJM court was for five days, police said.
Kalita had first fled to Bhubaneswar, Odisha after a nationwide outcry erupted following the media frenzy over the incident in which a young woman was molested by a large mob for over half an hour.
From there he went to Mumbai and then returned back to Bhubaneswar.
He then called several lawyers seeking anticipatory bail. Subsequently he again travelled to Mumbai and made several calls to lawyers from the CST station in Mumbai.
In Mumbai, he was captured by the security cameras at the station. Kalita then left Mumbai for Kolkata after his cousin there refused to lodge him.
At Speed Post office in Howrah he was captured yet again in CCTV footage. He then went to Varanasi.
