Bunty Chor shifted to Oolampara mental hospital

Thiruvananthapuram: Hi-tech thief Bunty Chor has been shifted to the Government Mental Health centre at Oolampara here, followed by a court order.

Bunty himself informed the court that he had some mental issues. The jail authorities, however, suspect it is a tactic of Bunty to escape from the prison.

He was, last week, shifted to a new cell of the Poojappura Central Prison here followed by the thief’s attempt to know about the ways to get out of the prison. The new cell was right in front of the surveillance camera.

Bunty had earlier been lodged with another Hindi speaking prisoner in the jail. According to the prison officials, he was overhead by a jail official asking the inmate about the ways to escape. The decision to shift the thief to a new cell was taken after this incident.

Devinder Singh alias Bunty Chor (41), the Delhi-based thief, was arrested for theft at the residence of an NRI businessman at Marappalam here. He decamped with a car and costly gadgets worth Rs 30 lakh in January this year.

He was nabbed by the police on 26 January after he checked into a lodge in Mangalwar Peth area in Pune.
