Escape bid of jail inmate foiled

Alertness of private security guards of Bishalgarh Sub-divisional Hospital foiled an escape bid of an inmate of the Central Correctional Home. According to Jail Police sources, the inmate, Bappi Sil, was brought to the hospital at around 11 am for conducting blood tests.

Sil entered the laboratory for the tests – later, he calmly came out of the lab and suddenly started running. Even before the Jail Police could sense what was happening, he was managed to run far away from the Police. However, noticing Bappi Sil running suspiciously, private security guards who were manning the Hospital gate chased him followed by the Jail Police.

After running almost a kilometer, Bappi Sil was nabbed. Private Guards and Jail Police brought Sil back to Hospital. Meanwhile, local people raised fingers at Jail Police Police.
