A 28-year-old man, with 18 criminal cases lodged against him, and a 17-year-old girl who had eloped and married, have once again managed to escape.
The Bombay High Court on Friday directed the police to freeze Kishore Angre’s bank account after being informed that huge amounts of money were deposited and withdrawn from his account.
The court in April had sent the girl to her parents’ place as she was a minor and restrained Angre from meeting her.
The court was then hearing an plea filed by Angre seeking quashing of the FIR lodged by girl’s father Pradeep Mete for kidnapping his daughter.
However, the girl managed to escape from her parents’ house on April 19.
Additional public prosecutor Mankunwar Deshmukh told the court on Friday that police probe revealed that someone has made deposits of Rs 56,000 and Rs 49,000 in Angre’s account with the Canara Bank in Thane.
The court will hear the case next week.
