Jammu, Feb 6: Director General of Prisons S K Mishra on Tuesday ordered an inquiry into the escape of dreaded Lashkar-e-Taiba militant Mohammed Naveed Jhatt.
Mishra said from Jammu that the inquiry will be limited to the central jail only to ascertain whether any prior information about Jhatt’s movement to the hospital was leaked.
“The inquiry will be headed by a Deputy Inspector General-rank officer,” he said.
The 22-year-old Jhatt staged a daring escape from busy SMHS Hospital here this morning with the help of two other militants.
Mishra said the inquiry will also include questioning of other inmates as well as some prison officials.
“We will give our detailed report to the home department very soon,” he said.
