Chennai, Feb 12 (UNI) A 36-year-old woman, wanted by the Mumbai police for the last two years, was detained by the immigration authorities at the Anna international airport here last night, but she once again managed to give a slip to them early today.
Airport soruces said the woman, Alamelu Lakshmikanth, had been evading the Mumbai police for the last couple of years in connection with a case. The Mumbai police had alerted the immigration authorities in all the airports to prevent her from fleeing the country.
When she came to the airport to board a Malaysian Airlines flight to Kuala Lumpur, immigration authorities cancelled her journey and detained her at around 2345 hrs last night.
They also informed the Mumbai police, who in turn asked them to hand her over to the airport police and a special team from Mumbai would take her into custody after obtaining transit remand.
As the immigration authorities allegedly delayed the process of handing her over to the airport police, the woman hoodwinked them and escaped.
Special teams have been formed to nab her.
