“We received information about the accused being found in Panvel. We have a sent a team of officials there to get details regarding the case. Also, our officials are searching for a CCTV footage in the area. We are also checking the CCTV footages of the Pune expressway and other highways,” said D Kamble, assistant CP, Kalyan.
The accused were booked by the Manpada police in a robbery, dacoity and attempt to murder case. While David was in Aadharwadi since August 2015, Nadar was imprisoned in October 2016. The CCTV footage of the duo’s escape shows how easily they managed to run away by jumping the jail wall. “The footage clearly shows that they used the CCTV wire. Later, they tied a stone to the wire and threw it on the other side. The stone got stuck on the iron security sensor. Then they climbed the wall and jumped on the other side,” said a Khadakpada police station officer.
