A man facing an arrest warrant for not appearing before the Pune Family Court in an ongoing litigation fled from the custody of the bailiff who arrived at his house to detain him. Police have launched a search for him.
The incident took place near Paud Road in the city at 8.30 am on Friday when the bailiff had gone to detain Saidas Thorve.
“When the bailiff was explaining the reason and condition of his arrest, Thorve told the bailiff that he wanted to go to the washroom before leaving with him. But he left the room and never returned,” said a police officer.
Later, the court bailiff, Jayesh Malkapurkar, filed an FIR at Kothrud police station. Thorve has been booked under Indian Penal Code Section 225B for “resistance or obstruction to lawful apprehension”.
