KOLKATA: Nine months after being pronounced guilty by a Kolkata sessions court, 2012 Park Street gangrape case prime accused Kader Khan and co-accused Ali Khan were nabbed by a special team of Kolkata police from Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday night.

“After getting specific inputs, the Kolkata Police team along with local police raided a house in Greater Noida and nabbed two Park street rape accused Kader Khan and Ali Khan at 1 am on Thursday night,” DC South Muralidhar Sharma said at a press conference on Friday.
It has been learnt that the duo had travelled to several states including Bihar and Uttar Pradesh and even countries like Bangladesh and Nepal after fleeing Kolkata. They finally sought refuge in Greater Noida.
“Kader Khan’s relatives got many phone calls from NCR. In our investigation, it was found that Kader and Ali were living under fake names,” a senior police official said. “Kolkata police sleuths were following the duo for the last 10 days,” the official said. The two convicts were brought to Kolkata on Friday and produced in a local court, which sent the duo to police custody till October 14. Convicts Sumit Bajaj and Kader Khan’s brothers Ruman Khan and Naseer Khan are already serving their sentences since December 11, 2015. A red corner notice was also issued by Interpol against Kader Khan.
Rape victim Suzette Jordan died of multiple organ failure on March 13, 2015. The mother of two was gangraped in a moving car in Park Street in central Kolkata on February 2, 2012.
All the five Park Street accused were found guilty under section 376 (2) (g) (gangrape) and other sections of the IPC.
