The 35-year-old man who was on top of the most wanted criminals list of Pakistani police is also known as the “Pakistani butcher”, BK spokesman Vincenz Kriegs-Au said.
Austrian police received information suggesting that he was planning to travel to Austria with the help of human smugglers.
They informed their Hungarian colleagues who stopped a group of 42 illegal migrants, including the wanted criminal, in a woodland area near the village of Bóly, in southern Hungary, close to the Croatian-Serbian-Hungarian border.
The Pakistani man was arrested under an international Interpol warrant. A decision on his extradition will be made in the next few days.
He is accused of having killed a total of 70 persons as hired assassin but Austrian police have no information about details of the contract killings, Kriegs-Au said.
