Mumbai An undertrial fled JJ Hospital at Byculla where he was taken for a medical examination on Thursday.
Mobin Mohommad Shameem Siddiqui foxed the two policemen by confusing them about his blood sample tube. He escaped from the rear gate of the hospital. The Borivli police had arrested him in a theft case last month and he was being kept in Taloja jail.
The policemen attached with a Navi Mumbai police station brought Siddiqui to JJ Hospital around noon on Thursday.
“As there were multiple blood sample tubes, Siddiqui confused the policemen when he said the tube they showed him did not contain his blood. No medical staff was present to corroborate his doubt. Siddiqui was asked to wait outside the room to let
the policemen find the right tube. That’s when he fled from the
back gate,” said a source.
The cops, who were meant to guard Siddiqui realised their mistake when they came out of the room, said the source.
The JJ Marg police have registered a case under Section 224 (resistance or obstruction to lawful apprehension) of the IPC.
