National Bureau of Investigation operatives on Tuesday morning arrested former army general Jovito Palparan in his hideout in Sta. Mesa, Manila.

Known as “The Butcher” by activists and human rights groups, Palparan went into hiding since December 2011 after his alleged involvement on the kidnapping of two female students from University of the Philippines Sherlyn Cadapan and Karen Empeño.
