Patna Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Manu Mahraj said Bashir was arrested from Danapur railway station when he was returning from Mumbai after his unsuccessful bid to sell the ruby ring there.
The mastermind of the crime Mushtaque Khan alias Goldy is still out of the grip of police. However, Bashir had confessed the police that Mushtaque was in Mumbai.
It may be recalled that a group of criminals looted the ring and other costly jewelries worth more than Rs 2 lakh from Baban Choubey's house on March 26 and escaped.
It is said that the ring belonged to Kulkant Singh and he gave it to Baban Choubey to keep it safe.
