In an incident that poses serious questions on level of security in prisons of Chhattisgarh state, especially those in restive areas, some of the inmates of the Dantewada jail escaped on Saturday.
Though certain media sections have reported that the number of those escaped is five, it has not yet been confirmed.
It is said that four to five inmates escaped from the prison but the police soon got a whiff of the conspiracy and pursued them.
Though the jail administration now claims that four inmates have been apprehended, how these inmates managed to escape could not be ascertained as yet.
The jail authorities of the state would have to review the security situation of the jails across the state.
There is also no information on whether any of the officials have been suspended for lapses.
