Punjab police clueless about Pakistani prisoner’s disappearanceSeptember 1st, 2010 - 10:37 pm ICT by IANS
Amritsar, Sep 1 (IANS) Punjab police and Amritsar district administration remained clueless Wednesday about the whereabouts of a Pakistani prisoner who has disappeared from a jail here.
According to police, Nayamat Ali disappeared under mysterious circumstances Tuesday.
He was arrested by the Border Security Force (BSF) an year ago for illegally entering India in the Lopoke area near Amritsar.
“So far we have not got any breakthrough in the case,” Amritsar Deputy Commissioner Kahan Singh Pannu told IANS Wednesday.
Jail officials said that Ali had completed his term Friday and he was waiting for his release and repatriation home. However, the jail authorities were taken by surprise when they found Ali missing from the prison.
An inquiry was initiated and three jail wardens, who were on duty, were suspended for negligence.
According to sources, Ali was last seen in his barrack Sunday afternoon.
“Ali was also not mentally stable. It is impossible for him to cross the 24-foot-high boundary wall of the jail,” said a jail official.
