Serampore, Feb. 5: Illegal arms dealer Shyambabu Bind, who had escaped from Serampore court last Saturday, was recaptured from Walsh Hospital today.
Bind told police he had escaped to foil the wedding of his paramour to another person.
He had raided the girl’s house last night to elope with her. But her parents raised an alarm and local youths cornered Bind and his three armed friends.
They escaped, but Bind was beaten unconscious. Seoraphuli police officials rescued him and took him to hospital, where the Serampore police, on a tip-off, arrested him.
