An Indian terror suspect accused of involvement in deadly bomb attacks five years ago escaped from a court in Mumbai on Friday, sparking a massive manhunt, police said.
Afzal Usmani, allegedly a member of a home-grown Islamist group known as the Indian Mujahideen, was appearing in court to hear prosecution charges against him, according to local media reports.
"He has escaped. The police, everybody is looking for him," Mumbai's anti-terror squad chief Rakesh Maria told AFP.
