Pune: A 40-year-old murder convict escaped
from the Yerawada jail here cutting iron grills of his barrack
and jumping over the jail wall, police said Tuesday.

Balasaheb Pawar, who fled the jail premises Monday night
mocking at the security blanket, was undergoing a life
sentence for murdering his brother-in-law in 2004.

Pawar reportedly managed to procure a hacksaw blade, pipe
and a rope from the jail`s industrial unit where he was
deployed for work, police sources added.

Maharashtra Minister of State for Home Ramesh Bagve
announced suspension of four prison guards in connection with
the security lapse at the central jail which houses about 3000
convicts from all over the state.
