Sachin Borde, the accused, was arrested from Nashik where he was hiding out by Unit-12 of the Mumbai crime branch.
Borde had collected Rs two crore from gullible buyers by offering to sell 18 flats, located in Andheri, Goregaon, Malad, Kandivali, Borivali, Dahisar, Mira Road, Vasai and Virat, the official said.
These flats had been seized by banks from loan defaulters. Borde cheated people by showing fake title documents of these flats, said inspector Mahesh Tawde of Unit-12.
After collecting the money he ran away from Mumbai and was living in Nashik for the last few months, Tawde said.
