BENGALURU: A 21-year-old rape accused sustained severe injuries after he tried to escape from the police at the City Civil Court Complex on Saturday evening.

Police said the accused, Vicky alias Narasimhamurthy, a native of Andhra Pradesh, was arrested by Bagalagunte police on Friday on charges of sexually assaulting a minor girl after kidnapping her. He was brought to the court on Saturday and produced before a magistrate, who remanded him to judicial custody for 12 days.

Escort policemen were bringing him down a staircase from the court hall located on the fourth floor when he sat down on the steps saying he was feeling giddy. When the policemen turned around to call for help, he started to run away.

He tried to escape by sliding down a water pipe but lost balance and fell to the third floor. He suffered a fractured leg after which police caught him.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he is recovering. Though he was handcuffed, Vicky tried to give the slip to the policemen.

The policemen who were escorting Vicky filed a case against him with Halasuru Gate police station. Vicky had kidnapped a 15-year-old girl and raped her on February 14. Based on a complaint from her parents, he was arrested on Friday. Inspector Suresh, head constable Ramanjaneya and another constable had escorted him to the court.

As Ramanjaneya was aged, Vicky tried his luck by wriggling out of his grasp.
