New Delhi: The Home Ministry has sought a report from Delhi Police and the FRRO on the three Pakistani nationals who escaped while being escorted to a city hospital.

According to sources, the ministry has also asked for steps to ensure enhanced security arrangements for both the detention centre as well as the transit custody of foreigners who are on the deportation list.

Abdul Razzak, Mohammed Sadiq and Rafaqat Ali, who were arrested in connection with blasts near the Red Fort nine years ago and were to be deported to Pakistan as they had completed their jail term, escaped on Friday, leaving the authorities red-faced and prompting them to sound an alert in the national capital and neighbouring areas.

The Delhi Police also announced a reward of Rs 50,000 today for anyone who provides information on the trio.

After the escape, Delhi Police registered a fresh case against the three for violating the restraint order under the Foreigners' Act.
