The Delhi Police on Monday arrested a rape accused, who had faked his death and was living in Jaipur with a new identity.
Police said Subhash Gulia, a resident of Badli village in North Delhi, reportedly died in Nepal, got a fake death certificate made and filed it in court to evade arrest. He was traced in Jaipur and arrested.
He was charged with kidnapping and raping a minor in 2007, following which he was arrested and sent to judicial custody. Later, he jumped bail and stopped attending court hearings, police said.
"Subsequently, his relatives submitted a death certificate in the trial court with a declaration that the man died in Nepal, where he had gone after getting bail, and was cremated there. But the story appeared concocted," Additional Commissioner of Police (Southwest) Anil Kumar Ojha said.
In 2010, the Sessions court ordered verification of the death certificate and police formed a special team to look into the matter.
Officers visited a number of places, carried out detailed verification, contacted a number of relatives and met people from localities where Gulia or his family had stayed.
"After his relatives were traced, it was found that Gulia was living in Jaipur as Monu, a new identity. He was arrested and remanded in judicial custody," a police officer said.
