CCB sleuths cry foul

CCB sleuths cry foul

The Central Crime Branch (CCB)  sleuths are crying foul at being denied credit for the arrest of serial rapist and psychopath Jaishanker who had escaped from Parappana Agrahara Central Prison.

The City police had claimed that the arrest was made because of a timely tip by an informant.

However, sleuths from CCB technical cell claim it was their work that led to the arrest of Jaishanker.

A senior CCB official said immediately after the jail break, the special team headed by B K Singh, Joint Commissioner (Law and Order – East) had collected and collated possible information about the fugitive psychopath from his associates and friends whom he might turn to for help.

Four special teams were formed within the CCB to aid the manhunt.

The CCB technical cell was given mobile phone numbers of those identified as probable men to whom Jaishanker might turn to for help.

The technical cell had been monitoring these numbers and struck gold when one of the numbers recieved a call from a PCO in Bangalore.

Conversation in Tamil

The senior official claimed that the conversation was in Tamil and within minutes into the conversation, it was clear that it was Jaishanker making the call.

The official said Jaishanker also described his hideout and asked the receiver to bring a vehicle to the hut near Kudlu Gate.

Sleuths from the CCB technical cell rushed to the spot, located the hut where Jaishanker was hiding and confirmed his presence there.

The senior official said sleuths only confirmed his presence and his antecedents with those staying nearby the hut and they were not the ones who tipped off the police in the first place.

Later, a special team of sleuths from CCB was assembled and the team raided the place and arrested Jaishanker, the official claimed.
