OGW escapes from custody: Police


An over ground worker affiliated with militant outfit Lashkar-e-Toiaba escaped from police custody in Sopore on Tuesday, said an official.
The incident took place during transportation of Abdul Majid Mir (25) back to police station Bomai from court where he was taken for hearing of a case.  Mir, a resident of Tujar Sharief Sopore, was arrested by police in November 2016 following a gunfight between militants and police. Police had claimed to have recovered a pistol from his possession.
An FIR (vide no 50/2016 under section 13 ULA) stand registered against him in police station Bomai. The superintendent of police Sopore said that two cops escorting the under trial has been placed under suspension. "Enquiry has been ordered to determine under what circumstances the inmate fled" said the SP Sopore.
