An accused in a bank fraud case managed to escape from Palasia police station on Sunday.
According to Palasia police, Ritesh (30), a resident of Somani Nagar, called the sentry, Vijay Singh, at 3.15am and said he had to answer nature's call.
Singh opened the gate and took him out of the lockup. Ritesh suddenly pushed Singh and fled from the police station.
Singh raised an alarm and those present in the police station launched a search for Ritesh in nearby areas but could not find him.
On Wednesday, Ritesh and his accomplice, Santosh Malviya were arrested for fraudulently withdrawing Rs 2.9 lakh from a bank account in Palasia.
A senior police officer said they will fix responsibility on those who were on duty and action would be taken against them.
