Four undertrial prisoners escaped from a jail in Sitamarhi district of Bihar taking advantage of a scuffle between some inmates and prison guards over poor quality of food, jail sources said on Tuesday.

The incident took place at the divisional jail on Monday evening when the four undertrials escaped by utilising the commotion during a scuffle between some inmates and the guards, jail superintendent Avinash Kumar Singh said.

Singh, who was also injured in the scuffle, said that raids were being carried out to nab the missing inmates, identified as Sadre Alam, Subodh Kumar, Suraj Kumar and Vinay Baitha.

As many as a dozen prisoners and jail guards sustained injuries in the scuffle and they were given first-aid by the doctors on Monday night, the jail superintendent said. In a related incident in Sheikhpura district, two inmates were injured after they were beaten up by guards at a divisional jail while they were protesting against poor quality of food served to them on Monday night, jail sources said.

The injured prisoners, identified as Munna Kunwar and Arun Singh, have been admitted to the Sadar hospital.
