Rawalpindi: Prisoner escapes from police custody
RAWALPINDI: A hardened criminal involved in heinous crimes, including murders, armed dacoities and bike-lifting, escaped from the RA Bazaar Police custody, police sources said.
Michel Genesis, a resident of Christian Colony, Dhoke Syedan, was wanted by the Rawalpindi Police in 3 murder cases, 17 armed dacoities and 25 bike–lifting cases, police said, adding that the RA Bazaar Police arrested the suspect and obtained his physical remand from the court of law for further investigation. In the wee hours, the suspect, taking advantage of police absence, sneaked out from the police lock-up in chains.
The concerned authorities took serious notice of the police inefficiency and served a show-cause to the SHO of the police station. Police tried to hunt down the suspect but failed to arrest him.
