An inmate of the Roorkee sub-jail in July this year has been arrested by the police. The inmate identified as Shahrukh, a native of Tanda Bhaneda in Manglaur area of Haridwar, had been booked in four cases.  However, during July, when the prison authorities were busy in cleaning and preparing for Independence Day, he climbed a tree to scale over the prison walls and escape.

Addressing the media, the Haridwar senior superintendent of police Senthil Avoodai said that considering his crime sheet, the Garhwal DIG and Haridwar SSP had declared cash rewards of Rs 5,000 and Rs  2,500 for his arrest.

The police team formed for the purpose got information that he was working in the border area between Bihar and West Bengal.

On reaching the location, the police came to know that the escaped inmate had been working as a labourer there under an assumed identity of a man from Delhi.

The police team also learnt that he had left to bring his father from his native village in Haridwar district.

On tracing him, the police succeeded in catching him in Haridwar on Tuesday, said the district’s SSP.
