Tokyo sarin attack fugitive caught

Julian Ryall in Tokyo

THE FINAL fugitive sought in connection with the 1995 sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system was arrested yesterday.

Katsuya Takahashi (54) was seized after an internet cafe worker phoned police to say that a man resembling the former member of the Aum Shinrikyo cult was in the cafe.

Mr Takahashi evaded capture 12 days ago, when he fled the apartment in the city of Kawasaki, where he had been living an hour before police arrived. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
