Acid attack convict, who jumped parole in 2007, arrested

Press Trust of India  |  Pune 

A 36-year-old convict who was absconding for nine years after jumping parole in 2007 was arrested by the city police.

Sitaram Adagale was serving life imprisonment for throwing acid on a 21-year-old girl in January 2005.



"The sessions here held him guilty and sentenced him to seven years' rigorous imprisonment in March 2007, however, Adagale then challenged the order in High Court.

"State government too appealed in the High and sought higher punishment," said an officer of the Anti Extortion Cell.

In August 2007, Adagale, who had got parole, did not retun to the Yerawada Central Prison here and disappeared.

In February this year, High enhanced his punishment to a life term.

"We received a tip-off that he was going to come near Bal Gandharv chowk on Thursday. A trap was laid and he was arrested," said the officer.

Adagale worked as a driver for cab service of a call center at Hinjawadi here where the girl worked. He had professed love for her many times, but she rejected him.

On January 31, 2005, he threw battery acid on her to take revenge, injuring her face and an eye.
