Rafiq is accused in a gold chain theft case. The police of Venoor police station had taken him for hearing at the court in Beltangady.

    All under trials must be placed in handcuffs so that they can not run away. Its sad that this incident has happend. May be there was a shortage of handcuffs also in some police stations. We must look security into all areas when transporting under trials.

    Look like police helped him to run away...
    I dont think police will take any under trial person without chaining or a police van.
    This is just drama or story by police.

    Whatever the reason,
    Taking undertrials in 'st bus,bicycle and motorbike' is a century old fashion.
    Now our MP,MLA,monsters (mini) travelling in 'Rolls Royce and Range Rovers' why can't we make a arrangement to take undertrials in a covered van?
