"We will take him to Rajasthan Tuesday for investigations on how he managed to get certificates and documents in the fake identity of "Raghava Raj" from Andhra Pradesh," said Anil. The Kerala Police have formed three teams of 20 officials to travel to Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha for the investigation. "Bitti will be first taken to Rajasthan where he jumped parole in 2006. If need be, he will be taken to the other two states," said a police official.
