UTP escapes from sub-jail for second time

Sunday, 04 August 2019 | PNS | NAYAGARH

An under-trial prisoner (UTP) on Saturday managed to escape from the sub-jail here for a second time in a span of three months.

Tapan Rout, arrested on the charge of raping a minor girl, had fled from the prison for the first time on May 10. Following this, a jail official was suspended while police managed to nab him the very next day.

Rout again gave the jail officials a slip on Saturday. As per reports, several inmates of the jail were engaged in cleaning work in view of the visit of the District Judge.

Taking advantage of the situation, Rout managed to escape from the jail.

But Jail Superintendent Sarada Prasanna Rout blamed the Public Works Department for the incident.

He said the jail administration had earlier urged PWD officials to increase the height of the prison’s boundary wall. But the work is yet to be undertaken.

The Superintendent further said that efforts were on to again nab the fugitive, who hails from Fatehgarh.
