Bandit Queen suspect flees jail

The prime suspect in the murder of Indian bandit-turned-politician Phoolan Devi has escaped from jail. Sher Singh Rana, arrested after Devi was killed two years ago, was due in court on Tuesday but went missing from Delhi’s high security Tihar prison. Men posing as policemen helped him in the daring escape. Devi became one of India’s best-known political figures after giving up years of crime, and starring in a film of her life which was shown worldwide. She was shot dead at the age of 38 in front of her official residence in Delhi in July 2001. Police say Sher Singh Rana confessed to the murder. They have offered a reward of 50,000 rupees (about $1,100) for information leading to his arrest. He is one of 11 people charged with the murder. Full Story
