A double-murder accused allegedly escaped from the court premises here before the judgement in his case was to be pronounced, officals said today.
The incident took place yesterday when the accused identified as Abdul Hassan fled from outside the court.
Additional District Sessions judge Arvind Rai has asked the police to produce the accused before the court on October 6.
A non-bailable warrant has been issued against Abdul along with a court order to initiate attachment proceedings, the judge said.
Abdul was charge-sheeted for the alleged murder of two persons whose bodies were found in a truck on Delhi-Dehradun National Highway on December 17, 2013.
The other accused in the murder case was a juvenile.
