Mumbai gangrape accused
Mumbai, Sept 26: Update: Lost and found: Mumbai gangrape accused emerges amid confusions. In what was considered a clerical error by the jail authorities, the Mumbai gangrape accused reportedly went missing. However, confirmed reports now say that he Shiraj Ur Rehman is very much in jail.

"He is very much in jail, he has not escaped," said Additional DG Prisons Thane.

Confusions brewed up when the accused was notproduced in court as the two departments of Maharashtra police argued over his custody. While the Thane jail authorities said that they did not have the custody of the accused, but the Crime Btanch.

The latter, however, denied the allegations. Now that he has been traced in the jail, the blame has been put on the manual entry of the convicts, which is a cumbursome task given the expanse and the population of the jail here.

Mumbai gangrape case: Shakti mill accused missing from Thane jail:

Just a week after Afzal Usmani fled from Mumbai court, one of the four prime accused in the Mumbai gangrape-Shiraj Ur Rehman-has gone missing from the Thane jail. Both the Mumbai and the Navi Mumbai police are on the look out for the accused. Chances of tracing the accused is meagre as the police is yet to trace the locations of the IM terrorist Usmani.

Shiraj Ur Rehman was also alleged to be involved in other rape cases reported after the Mumbai gangrape case. His escape has come as a big blow to the efficiency of the Mumbai crime branch and the police.

However, Mumbai Crime Branch's claims that the accused is still present in Thane jail is giving rise to speculations as to why the crime branch would tarnish its own image unnecessarily. As per sources, a letter to the court by the jail authorities clearly mentioned that the accused is not in their custody.
