Two members of the banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi terrorist group have escaped from the Central Jail, Karachi, police said on Wednesday.

Prison authorities have suspended a dozen officials.

Late Tuesday night, the two militants, Shaikh Muhammad Mumtaz alias Firaun alias Sher Khan alias Shahzad alias Bhai, and Muhammad Ahmed Khan alias Munna, broke out of prison, a jail official said.

The two men are members of the Hafiz Qasim Rasheed and Sabir Munna groups of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. These groups are considered the most dangerous wings of the proscribed sectarian outfit.

Ahmed alias Munna was sentenced to 14 years in prison.

The suspended jail officials include Prison Superintendent Ghulam Murtaza Shaikh, Deputy Superintendent Faheem Memon, Assistant Superintendent Abdul Rehman Shaikh, ASI Faroosh Muhammad, Police Commando Nawab Ali, and constables Atta Muhammad, Muhammad Amir, Abdul Ghaffor, Saeed Ahmed, Muhammad Sajjad, Tagial Naseer and Nadir Ali.

Prisons DIG Ashraf Ali Nizamani has written a letter to the New Town SHO to register a case against the suspended jail officials.

“It is informed that the two prisoners were found missing and reported to have escaped from the judicial complex adjacent to the Central Prison, Karachi,” the letter read. “You are requested to lodge an FIR under the relevant sections of the law against the officials as the prisoners have escaped because of their negligence.”

Prisons IG Nusrat Mangan said the prisoners escaped from the newly built anti-terrorism court complex inside the premises of the central prison.

“The building is on the perimeter of the prison and that’s why security there is not the same as it is inside the jail building,” he added. “We have suspended some officers linked to the matter and have formed a committee to investigate into the matter. If it is found that someone from within our ranks helped them escape, they will be dealt with sternly.”

The official said police teams had been dispatched to track down the two terrorists.
