BENGALURU: The  grandson of former MP and liquor baron D K Adikesavalu, Geetha Vishnu, who was booked on Thursday for negligent driving and possession of marijuana, escaped from Mallya Hospital during the early hours of Friday morning, evading police arrest. To a question on why he was taken to Mallya Hospital where his family has a stake and not to any other nearby hospital, DCP (South) S D Sharanappa said that Vishnu himself went to the hospital and got himself admitted. Police came to know about it later and went to the hospital, he said. Sources said police were stationed outside the ICU to record a statement from Vishnu and arrest him. 


“But with the help of his personal security guard, Vishnu escaped from another door which the police did not know about,” the source said. The investigation so far suggests that Vishnu’s personal assistant helped him evade arrest. Police suspect that the accused may approach court by Tuesday, seeking bail.
