A Sri Lankan woman, wanted for allegedly soliciting for prostitution, escaped from police custody while being treated at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.

The 27-year-old woman, who was detained under Section 372(B) of the Penal Code by the Wangsa Maju Anti-Vice, Gaming and Secret Societies Division (D7), fled her hospital bed at about 8.30pm on Tuesday.

At the time of the incident, the woman was handcuffed but managed to free herself when two officers in charge went to break their fast.

The woman was admitted to the hospital on Monday for a stomach ache.

“There was no one guarding her when both of the policemen went to have dinner. That’s when she took the chance to flee,” said the source.

The woman, who was arrested, last Saturday, did not have a valid travel document and is being remanded for 14 days till July 17.

Police were in the midst of tracking down the suspect.(The star online)
