Accused Escapes During Transport to Puzhal Central Prison

In a surprising turn of events, a 24-year-old accused managed to escape from police custody while being transported to Puzhal Central Prison on Tuesday night. The accused, identified as Srinivasan from Thiruverkadu, had been arrested in connection with a 2018 robbery case but had absconded after being released on bail, failing to appear for court hearings.

In response, an arrest warrant had been issued against him. Upon recapture, Srinivasan was produced before a judicial magistrate, who ordered his detention at Puzhal prison. However, during his transfer to the prison, Srinivasan reportedly assaulted the accompanying policemen and escaped. The Puzhal police have initiated a special team to apprehend the escaped accused.
