Bijnor: A prisoner, undergoing life imprisonment in district jail here in a murder and dacoity case fled from police custody from a hospital, police said on Sunday.

Mahendra Saini had been referred to Meerut Medical College Hospital by the district hospital here for treatment of a suspected case of cancer. He escaped from the hospital yesterday, they said.

He was given life sentence in a dacoity and murder case last week and was kept in Bijnor jail.

The three policemen -- Ravi Kumar, Arvind Rathore and Pradeep Kumar -- accompanying Saini have been arrested, police said.

The police have launched a manhunt to nab the prisoner.
