MANHUNT FOR DETAINEE FACING DEATH PENALTY - MKini
Malaysian police have launched a manhunt for a Singaporean detainee facing the death sentence, who escaped from custody in handcuffs while being escorted to court.
The New Straits Times said the Singaporean man was being taken to a court lock-up in a police vehicle with two other detainees on Friday, when he shoved an officer out of the car and escaped.
The remaining officer could not give chase as he had to guard the other detainees.
A two-hour search at the scene, involving two police dogs, proved fruitless.
Khalid Abu Bakar, police chief of central Selangor state, told the daily that an investigation would be conducted into how the man managed to escape.
"The two policemen are also being investigated as certain procedures were not followed," he said.
The Singaporean, who was not named in the report, was arrested several years ago and charged with drug trafficking, which carries the death penalty.- AFP
