The following synthetic conversion can be obtained through addition of $H_2SO_4$ with heat and then Halohydrins mechanism.
The reaction of $H_2SO_4$ in presence of heat gives a double bond by deprotonating OH. Then on this double bond the halohydrin mechanism is performed. The mechanism that gives this product is the addition of Halohydrins: 1) Electrophilic attack forms a chloronium ion. 2) Back-side attack by water on the most substituted carbon opens the chloronium ion. 3) Water removes a proton to give the chlorohydrin. Product + enantiomer formed.
