A theft accused Shreenath Rathod alias Shreesha escaped by jumping from the first floor window of Vasco JMFC on Monday morning.


Rathod was brought by Verna police to take him in further custody but he was granted bail. When he reached down with his advocate and wife, a Konkan railway police team asked his custody for few cases registered by them.


As they came in civil without warrant the advocate stopped them from taking him in custody. Meanwhile Rathod ran away by running upstairs and jumping from window of the first floor. Police officials however denied this by pointing out that he made his escape through the main door.

As carnival was being celebrated on the Vasco city streets, Rathod easily mixed with the crowd and escaped the clutches of the Konkan railway police.
