MP jailbreak: 2 inmates escape Morena Jail; 4 cop suspended

At least two prisoners escaped from Morena Jail in MP on Monday. Four policemen have been suspended after initial probe.

According to local media reports, the two prisoners have been identified as Omprakash Jaat (36) & Anil Dhanela (26) both of whom had been booked for murder, loot and rape.

Alarmingly, the jail authorities came to know about the incident only after relative of Rathore came to meet him in morning hours.

“We came to know about the jail break when a relative of Rathore came to meet him in morning. We searched for the prisoner inside but couldn’t find him,” Jailor BS Mourya said, adding they found Rathore and Jat missing after taking a head count.

He said in the head count taken last evening the duo were found to be present, which meant they escaped apparently in wee hours today.

Citing circumstantial evidence, Mourya said Jat and Rathore broke their way through the closed cemented entry to reach the staircase which opens into a small terrace located near the boundary wall of the jail and jumped out.

A complaint has been lodged with Kotwali Police in this regard, following which a search is on to trace the duo.

“We are in the process of initiating action against chief warder Dattaram and three warders Ramavtar, Brijendra Singh and Phool Singh on duty during the jail break,” he added.

Incidentally, eight SIMI men awaiting trial had escaped from highly-fortified Bhopal Central Jail on Diwali night last year after killing a warder. They were subsequently killed in an alleged exchange of fire by police on the same day.The prison authorities in the state have been claiming they have ramped up security since the Bhopal jailbreak.
