Kolkata: Three Bangladeshi inmates escaped from Alipore Central Correctional Home on Saturday night, where they were imprisoned for three years.

The matter came to light on Sunday morning during the counting of the inmates.

The inmates were identified as Mohammad Farooq Haoladar, Iman Chaudhuri and Firdaus Sheikh. They were arrested on various charges including robbery, kidnapping and for illegally infiltrating into India.

The jail officials raised an alarm and sniffer dogs were pressed into action. Initial probe revealed that they used bed sheets as ropes to scale the boundary walls to flee through Adi Ganga, police said.

Following the incident, five jail officials were suspended for ‘dereliction of duty’. The prison superintendent was show-caused. He was asked to give a written explanation of how they managed to flee.

Meanwhile, the photographs of the three prisoners were circulated in all the bordering police stations. A team of policemen were assigned to look for them.
