Vadodara: Airports in the country have been alerted following the escape of a Canadian national -- an under-trial in a narcotics case -- from police custody last night here, official sources said Friday.

Xie Jing Feng, a Canadian of Chinese origin, fled from SSG Hospital here, where he had been taken for treatment.

He and his two associates had been arrested after Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) busted an international drug trafficking racket with seizure of 30 kg of Methamphetamine worth Rs 12 crore from a clandestine laboratory near here in November 2008.

Police officials who were accompanying him when he fled have been suspended, said city Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana.
