New Delhi: Two undertrials escaped from
Tihar Jail this evening while being shifted to prison from
de-addiction centre but one was arrested while a search is on
for the other who is believed to be inside the complex.
The incident took place at around 4:30 pm when jail
officials were shifting ten inmates from de-addiction centre
in Jail No 3, which is close to the periphery wall, to Jail No
1, officials said.



Two inmates -- Satish (28) and Sanju (24) -- broke
open the jail van`s rear door and fled the spot, officials
said. However, Satish was apprehended later from inside the
prison complex.



"Sanju is also inside the complex. He is hiding inside
the complex. Searches are on to nab them," the officials said.
Satish was brought to Tihar Jail on March 10 on an
attempt to murder case of Uttam Nagar while Sanju was brought
to the jail the next day in a theft case of Vikaspuri. Both of
them knew each other and are residents of Kali Basti in Uttam
Nagar.
"They were sent to de-addiction centre after they told
jail officials that they were drug addicts," the officials
said.



A case has been registered in connection with the
case.
