Three Prisoners Escaped from Lahore Court Realizing Bail Rejection
At least three under trial prisoners, who were facing investigation in kidnapping and theft cases, managed to escape from Lahore Registry of the Supreme Court (SC) on Monday, media reported.
According to reports, Asim, Javed and Ansar escaped police custody after they found out their bail pleas were rejected by the court.
“The accused came out of the court room and started congratulating each other saying their bail pleas were accepted by the court,” an eyewitness said.
Further, the police guards did not even ask the court officials about the bail pleas of the prisoners allowing them to easily escape from the court premises.
The police are carrying out search operations to re-arrest the accused.
On Monday, an under trial prisoner accused of possessing explosives had escaped from the premises of the Anti-Terrorism Court-IX (ATC) in Karachi. Tanveer alias Jambu, who was under custody of the Special Investigation Unit (SIU) was brought to the ATC from the Karachi Central Jail as a hearing in his case was fixed for Monday. The accused had managed to remove his handcuffs before fleeing the court premises, sources informed media.
Tanveer had been under investigation over possession of explosives after he was arrested at the Ibrahim Hyderi area of Karachi in late 2014.
