Dhashwant caught by city police team

Chennai: A day after a city police team rounded up 24-year-old Dhashwanth in Mumbai, an accused in the child rape and murder case wanted for the murder of his mother too, he managed to give a slip to the police and escaped from custody there.

Daswant is notorious in Chennai as the alleged rapist and murderer of a seven-year-old girl.

The Chennai Police, who arrested Daswant, had been staying at Hotel Satellite in Vile Parle East and were to fly out from the airport on Thursday night. "The police were taken by surprise as they did not expect him to flee", said Laxman Chavan, senior inspector, Vile Parle police station. Spotting his chance, Daswant pushed the cops and made his escape, still wearing handcuffs on his wrists. 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.

The commissioner then spoke to his Mumbai counterpart, Dattatray Padsalgikar, and a message went out across the city, asking everyone in the force to look out for the escaped suspect with handcuff on one hand.

Daswant is an unemployed techie, said to have been involved in minor crimes such as bike theft before he raped the seven-year-old in February. The TN police arrested him under the POCSO Act and the Goondas Act. He hid her body for a day before stuffing it in a travel bag and burning it under a bridge. Jewellery worth 200 grams and her son, who was out on bail, went missing from the house pointing the needle of suspicion towards Dashwanth.

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