DG-Prisons orders inquiry

JAMMU: Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Prisons S K Mishra today ordered an inquiry into the escape of dreaded Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Mohammed Naveed Jhatt. Mishra told reporters from Jammu that the inquiry will be limited to the central jail only to ascertain whether any prior information about Jhatt’s movement to the hospital was leaked. “The inquiry will be headed by a Deputy Inspector General-rank officer,” he said. The 22-year-old Jhatt staged a daring escape from busy SMHS Hospital here this morning with the help of two other terrorists.
