A manhunt was under way today after a 44-year-old rapist escaped from immigration officials while being served with a deportation order.
Imtiaz Hussain escaped from the Pakistan High Commission in Lowndes Square, central London, at around 2.35pm on Friday.
He was seen to run along Sloane Square.
Hussain was serving a prison sentence in the north of England having been convicted of rape and false imprisonment.
A police spokeswoman said Hussain was at the commission because he was due to be deported at the end of his sentence.
Detective Chief Inspector Brent Lancaster said: "This individual is believed to very dangerous and we need to apprehend him as soon as possible. If anyone sees him, please don't approach him but call or alert police immediately."
Hussain is described as around 5ft 5ins, of medium to chubby build, with dark cropped hair, and was wearing a blue T-shirt, blue jeans and white trainers.
