A thief, being chased by a police patrol team, entered a well to evade arrest and got stuck there. He remained there for two days and was rescued on Monday by Fire and Rescue Services and police personnel.
A police team was patrolling in Chandrasekarapuram when they spotted Jaisingh, 44, of Old Washermanpet, moving about suspiciously, and chased him. He fled and climbed down the well.
After hiding there for some time, he was unable to climb out. He kept shouting but to no avail.
After two days, some people heard him and alerted the authorities. Using a rope, he was rescued and handed over to the police.
Jaisingh was wanted for three murder and 19 other cases. He came out on bail recently and, with friends, burgled a house in the Indian Bank quarters in Ambattur. He was fleeing after stealing ₹10,000 from there.
