Jaywanth Shekhar, accused of murdering and sexually assaulting a seven-year-old girl in Chennai, managed to escape from police custody just a day after being arrested. After being arrested, a local court gave the Chennai cops transit remand to take him back to the Tamil Nadu city.

Daswant was out on bail since September for his alleged role in the rape and murder of a child in Chennai in February.

Yesterday, the cops were escorting him back to Chennai, and they made a decision to stop at a hotel in Vile Parle for lunch. The officer said that Daswant, who had stolen around 25 sovereigns from his mother S Sarala, after killing her with an iron rod, escaped to Mumbai by train with the help of another suspect whom he befriended in Puzhal prison. All police stations in Mumbai have put on alert and nakabandis have been set up at major junctions in the city. The victim was his neighbour, and he allegedly used a puppy to lure her.

After a thorough search, two police personnel went to the airport, less than a kilometer away. He then gagged her to death and burned the body near Anakaputhur.

On Thursday, police obtained the warrant and went to Hotel Satellite for lunch with Dashvanth, one of his hands handcuffed and held by a constable.

However, in September, he was released on bail on a technicality, after his father filed an appeal stating that Daswant could not be arrested under the Goondas Act. ubsequently, a special women's court framed charges against him in the rape and murder case, and the trial was scheduled to begin on December 5.

"The accused was eating with the police when he got up and ran out of the hotel".

Shekhar's escape is giving the Mumbai police sleepless night.
