Wednesday, January 5, 2011

NEW DELHI - The Delhi Police have apprehended a man for escaping arrest since last two years by faking his own death.

According to the police, the accused was wanted in 14 cases under the Excise Act. Since last two years, the accused - a resident of Tilak Nagar - was continuously absent from court.

When his family members informed the court that he was dead, the court asked the police to verify it.

“When our team checked at the address given by the accused, Parvez, we found that the woman residing there was unaware of his death,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) V. Renganathan.

Following the incident, the police grew suspicious.

The police got a tip off that Parvez was residing in Raghubir Nagar and he had even gone to cast his vote for pradhan elections in Uttar Pradesh.

“One of our team, while looking for Parvez, caught a man named Raju who claimed he was Parvez’s brother. Unable to produce the death certificate of Parvez, our team took his finger prints and sent it the Computerized Remote Identification of Suspects (CRIS) Jan 1,” Renganathan said.

The CRIS report revealed that Raju’s finger prints were of Parvez. Parvez has confessed that he was lying.
