Melaye jumped out the window and was rescued from the police by the “ hoodlums and miscreants to an unknown destination”, the statement said.

Moshood said the police team reinforced and trailed Melaye to Zankli Hospital to re-arrest him.

Melaye is to be arraigned “without further delay,” Moshood said.

"Meanwhile, one of the Toyota Hilux vehicles used by the hoodlums and miscreants in aiding the escape of the Senator has been recovered by the Police investigation team,” he added.
