Absconding rape case convict Bitty Mohanty who has been in judicial custody here following his arrest from here in March last year was on Monday taken to the Jaipur Jail following an order passed by the Payyannur Judicial First Class Magistrate Court last week.

Bitty, who claims himself to be Raghav Rajan, was escorted by a three-member police team. They boarded the Ernakulam-Ajmeer Marusagar Express in the early hours of Monday.

The court on June 9 had ordered, on a plea of the Superintendent of the Special Sub Jail here where Bitty was lodged, that Bitty be handed over to the jail authorities in Jaipur and that he be produced in the court as and when the police here demanded that in connection with the case of impersonation charged against him.

Bitty had been arrested from here on March 9 last year when he was working as probationary officer in a public sector bank branch at Pazhayangadi here under the name of Raghav Rajan. The police here also found that he had joined the MBA programme earlier in a college here.
