In further embarrassment for the Gujarat Police, it has now emerged that the cops who were arrested and suspended today for letting a key witness in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case escape, had a few drinks with him before he gave them the slip. The four policemen - two constables, one Sub-Inspector and a commando - have been accused of negligence and acting in collusion after Sylvester Daniel, an accomplice of Sohrabuddin, fled on Friday night while being brought back from a court appearance in Udaipur by a police party from Vadodara. The incident occurred when the cops were reportedly having a snack. He was lodged in Vadodara Jail.
