Murder convict who jumped parole held

Sudarshan Kumar Dutta was arrested from his residence at Bengali Colony at Mahabir Enclave in south east Delhi, said Additional Commissioner of Police (south east) Ajay Chaudhry.

Dutta, who hails from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh, murdered Col K M S Bhutalia and his wife Geeta Bhutalia on January 30, 1995. Dutta, who was a property dealer at Lajpat Nagar in south east Delhi, was arrested along with three more accomplices in February, 1995 and was charge-sheeted. He was convicted and awarded life imprisonment on  February 22, 2002.

Dutta filed an appeal in High Court, but his conviction was upheld. He had been in jail for 14 years and was granted parole in January, 2010 by the Supreme Court, but he jumped the parole and was consequently declared proclaimed offender in April, 2011. He was in hiding since then.
