Rape accused flees cops’ custody in Rourkela

Monday, 21 June 2021 | PNS | ROURKELA

A rape accused who was sent for medical examination with escorts after his arrest managed to flee hospital in movie style on Saturday evening here. Police launched a manhunt to nab him.

A married woman had lodged a complaint at the Chhend police station that Kishore Das, a resident of Chhend, had been forcibly keeping physical relationship with her for last few days and threatening her of dire consequences if she told it to anybody. Police nabbed Kishore on Saturday afternoon.

The accused was sent for medical examination to the Rourkela Government Hospital (RGH) at around 5 pm along with three escorting policemen. His first round of medical checkup was conducted and he was asked to wait for a second round. On the plea of going to washroom, he suddenly started running out from the hospital premises.

The three escorts ran after him for a while, but he successfully escaped from the spot by pillion-riding a Bullet motorcycle. The driver of the Bullet is reportedly the nephew of the accused.

The incident, however, has come as a major embarrassment for police since it clearly appeared from the CCTV footage that the accused escaped in a planned manner."We will nab the accused soon," said Panposh SDPO Santa Nutan Samal, adding. “A departmental inquiry will be conducted; and if any police official is found guilty, action will be taken against him.”
