B'deshi inmate of Alipore Correctional Home rearrested

Kolkata: The detective department of Kolkata Police rearrested Emon Chaudhuri from a hideout in Sealdah in Central Kolkata in the wee hours of Saturday. Emon was one of the three Bangladeshi inmates who had scaled the boundary wall of Alipore Central Correctional Home and escaped on January 14.

"We were tracking his movement right from the time he escaped from the Correctional Home. He was nabbed on the basis of a specific source information," Joint Commissioner of Police (crime) Pravin Tripathy said.
The accused will be produced at Alipore court on Sunday.
The photographs of the three prisoners were sent to all the police stations in and the around the city and police deployed at the borders of the state were alerted. This prevented Chaudhuri from fleeing to Bangladesh across the border.
It may be mentioned that the trio had scaled a 20ft wall using nine rags and bedsheets provided to them last week by the prison authorities to beat the winter chill. Apart from Chaudhuri (24), Firdaus Sheikh (29) and Farukh Hawladar (24) had fled away raising questions over the lack of security at the central prison. Preliminary probe had revealed the trio had fed 'Joynagar er Moya' spiked with sedatives to some inmates, who were near the prison door.
While Hawladar and Sheikh were undertrials, Chaudhuri was a convict. His jail term had ended two months ago and his repatriation procedure was under way.
