While waiting to receive his first dosage of the Covid-19 vaccination, a 24-year-old man from the western Odisha district of Bolangir, who was accused of rape and has been missing for more than two years, landed in the police trap. As per the cops, Arun Podha of Bhainsar village, who has been suspected of rape since March 2019, was standing in line at a Covid-19 immunization centre under the Patnagarh police station on Saturday when he was apprehended by a waiting police team.

In March of this year, Podha was charged with raping a 20-year-old woman. However, the local police were unable to track him down as he fled to Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore.“We had got information a few days ago that he had come to his house after lockdown, and we raided it, but he escaped. Then we got another tip-off that he would be coming to take the Covid-19 vaccine and waited. He was arrested soon after taking the jab,” said Patnagarh sub-divisional police officer Jyotirmay Bhukta.
