Key Sohrabuddin case witness escapes
Sylvester Daniel, a key witness in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, made a dramatic escape from Gujarat Police custody after being produced in a local court in Udaipur. There were different versions of how Daniel, an alleged accomplice of Sheikh, managed to escape. While the Rajasthan Police claimed that he gave them the slip on the pretext of going to the toilet, the Gujarat Police said he fled when they stopped for tea near the highway on Friday night. Daniel's escape can prove to be a stumbling block in the case.
