Gangster Deepak Tinu, one of the accused in the Sidhu Moosewala murder case, escaped from police custody in Punjab's Mansa district, official sources said on Sunday.
They said a manhunt has been launched to nab Tinu, who escaped on Saturday night when he was brought on a production warrant from Goindwal Sahib jail in another case by the Mansa police, they said.
Tinu is a close aide of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, also an accused in the murder case of the Punjabi singer.
When asked about the incident, inspector general, Bathinda Range, Mukhwinder Singh Chhina said over phone, "We are working on it, police parties are on the job and we will catch him soon."
