New Delhi, June 29 (ANI): Terming the Tihar jailbreak incident a ‘matter of concern’, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju on Monday said that his ministry has asked for a report on the matter.
“It is a matter of concern, we have asked for a report. The report will be taken into cognizance and appropriate actions will be taken,” Rijiju told ANI.
Delhi Home Minister Satyendra Jain earlier said that a magisterial inquiry has been ordered into the incident, where two under trials dug a tunnel to escape the prison.
The two prisoners had scaled a wall and dug a tunnel in the dead of night to escape from jail. One of the prisoners, Faizan, has been caught but the other, Javed, is on the run.
The jailbreak took place during the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday and came to the notice of jail authorities only when the two inmates were found missing during the morning roll call. (ANI)
