A man accused in three gang-rape cases was arrested in Chhattisgarh’s Jashpur district after 14 years on the run, police said on Sunday.
Shiv Sirajit Ram was held after a tip off that he was brandishing a sharp-edged weapon in Purananagar area, Kotwali police station official LS Dhruve said.
“He is an accused in three gang-rape cases that took place in 2008. He was absconding since then. We have also slapped Arms Act provisions on him now,” he added.
