A history-sheeter named Suresh Yadav, who escaped from police custody in Sitapur district in 2005, was traced alive by UP crime branch-CID team from a village in Sitapur Saturday.
His family members lodged a murder case against the cops after his disappearance and his family members later identified a body recovered in Barabanki as that of Yadav.
Sitapur SP Rakesh Sahu said a murder case was registered against the then station officer (SO) of Leharpur police station Deviram Gautam and five others after Yadav's brother Harinam identified a decomposed body of a person as that of his brother Suresh.
The unidentified body was recovered from a nullah in Barabanki district. Harinam said that policemen killed his brother in police custody and cooked up the story of his escape.
Yadav's family also lodged a complaint with the NHRC. On recommendation of the commission, the state government transferred the investigation to Crime Branch CID, Sahu said.
During investigation, the CID team found out that Yadav was staying in Delhi and was in touch with his family members and the relatives.
While his movement was under surveillance, the team traced his location in Hargaon area and was caught in a joint operation with the Sitapur Police.
Suresh will be produced before the local court Monday, Sahu added.
