Ghaziabad: Undertrials allegedly drugged two police constables, who were escorting them, and escaped leading to the suspension and arrest of the cops.

Rajender and Shyam Singh brought two undertrials from Dasna district jail to the courts of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate here yesterday, Senior Superintendent of Police Rahubir Lal said.

After hearing, the constables went to a local restaurant and purportedly consumed liquor with the undertrials, he said. Apparently the plan was hatched by the undertrials who drugged the constables and escaped, the SSP said.

After the prisoners did not reach Dasna jail, authorities informed the police and a search was launched.

Both the constables were found unconscious on roadside last night, Lal said.

A case was registered against them and both were sent to jail, he said adding the undertrials were denied bail after which they hatched the plan.

One of undertrials, a murder accused, had escaped earlier from Hapur also.
