A total of 130 prisoners returned to the DI Khan Central Prison during the stipulated period, but 154 inmates including those jailed for sectarian and terrorism cases remain at large.

Apart from the 130 offenders who have returned, security forces, in joint operation with police also managed to re-arrest some of the others. On August 17, eight escaped prisoners were arrested from Rana Zai Jahani in Kulachi tehsil of DI Khan.

Over 250 inmates including high-profile Taliban militants escaped from the jail on July 29 when 150 Taliban militants armed with heavy artillery stormed the prison and freed their colleagues before escaping.

    wah,wah. What a hairy brainy idea. They can’t do anything against jail breakers but want the runaways to come back voluntarily. I have never seen a river flowing back but these people wish it to happen. Keep on dreaming folks!
