FAISALABAD:


A jail break by six prisoners at Borstal Jail was foiled by police on Friday. Khurarianwala police on Saturday registered a case against eight people, including two women. 


Borstal Jail Warden Muhammad Din told media persons on Saturday that juvenile prisoners Tariq, Ilyas, Sadaqat, Rehmat Ali, Tauqeer and Ali Ahmad, inmates at a barrack, had planned to escape from prison.

Tariq’s wife Fatima and Ilyas’s mother Rasheeda Bibi had come to meet the inmates on Friday. Investigation In-charge Ghulam Nabi told The Express Tribune that the prisoners’ interrogation had revealed that the women had smuggled blades into the prison by hiding them in their shoes.

He said the prisoners had planned to cut the steel rods of the jail’s windows. However, the jail staff found the blades and uncovered the plot. The warden said that the Khurarianwala police had registered a case against the six inmates and Tariq’s wife Fatima and Rasheeda Bibi on the complaint of Borstal Jail Superintendent Azhar Hayat. He said they were looking for the women.
