Baddan Singh alias Baddo, a 50-year-old criminal facing a life sentence for at least 10 cases including killing a lawyer in 1996, being a dacoit and more had an Andy Dufresne escape from the police custody Thursday afternoon while he was being taken to a Ghaziabad court. The gangster reportedly duped six cops who were escorting him back to prison after a court hearing in Meerut with a lure of a liquor party in a hotel.
“Baddo took the cops, who were escorting him, to a hotel on Dehli road in Meerut where his accomplices had thrown a liquor party. We have detained seven policemen, including an inspector, but they are still not in their senses. Baddo was lodged in Fatehgarh jail and was on way to a court in Ghaziabad in connection with hearing of a case. Nearly 10 cases, including those of murder and dacoity, are lodged against him. We hope to arrest him soon,” said Nitin Tiwari, Senior Superintendent of Police, Meerut. “Those detained are constables Omveer, Santosh, Sunil, Rajkumar, Bhupinder and Ihetashamam and police inspector of Farrukhabad, Deshraj Tyagi,” said Nitin Tiwari according to MSN.
This convicted badass criminal, one straight out of Prison Break was arrested by the Meerut police last year. The convict was initially reported to have been in Meerut jail for nearly one month but was later shifted to Fatehgarh jail in Farrukhabad district after receiving threats on his life.
