THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A youth accused in several criminal cases escaped with his handcuffs from  Kazhakkoottam police station late on Sunday night. Ratheesh, 30, of Menamkulam, near Kazhakkoottam, was arrested on Sunday night on the charge of attacking a group of people at Kadinamkulam. According to the police, Ratheesh, after being arrested, was brought to the police station around 10.30 pm.
