Convicted escapee back in Mazaruni Prison

The Mazaruni Prison

A convict, who escaped from the Mazaruni Prison earlier this week, was recaptured Tuesday afternoon in Bartica, sources said.

According to the usually reliable officials, Anand Drepersaud fled the prison on Sunday while he and other inmates were playing an outdoor game. He is serving a one-year sentence for wounding.

Drepersaud was first spotted hiding in a clump of bushes, but he later sprinted around the gold mining township until he was eventually nabbed.
