8 SIMI terrorists escape from Bhopal Central Jail, kill security guard

NEW DELHI: In a daring jailbreak, eight terrorists of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) escaped from Bhopal Central Jail early this morning after killing a security guard and scaling the prison wall using bed sheets.

“Eight SIMI activists escaped around 2-3am by killing a jail security guard,” DIG Bhopal Raman Singh told PTI.

They slit the guard’s throat with a steel plate and glass after overpowering him, the DIG said.

A hunt is on to nab the terrorists.

This is not the first time SIMI terrorists have escaped from jail in Madhya Pradesh.

In 2013, seven terror suspects from SIMI cut the iron bars of a Khandwa jail’s bathroom window and escaped after stabbing two security guards. They stole rifles and wireless sets.

 More details awaited.
