Bhopal Jail Outbreak

It has been found that nearly 80 guards were “missing” at the Bhopal Central Jail when the eight members of the banned Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) allegedly managed a daring prison break last week before being encounter hours later which is being said as fake. An audio tap is in public domain where the policemen can be heard ordering to kill the eight undertrials and there was no intention to arrest them.

Instead of safeguarding the jail, they were posted in the offices or homes of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Jail Minister Kusum Mehdele, former Jail Ministers, jail officials, and even the jail headquarters.

NDTV reported that for around 3,300 prisoners at one of the state’s most high-security prisons, there are just 139 guards.

Out of 250 posts for guards at this jail, 31 are vacant and 70 of them are trainees. This is of great concern.


The incident
On Monday, the Madhya Pradesh government claimed that eight undertrial members from the banned SIMI organization, who had escaped the Bhopal Central Jail in the early hours, were gunned down in an ‘encounter’ on the outskirts of the city. The eight of them allegedly slit the throat of a prison guard named Ram Shankar Yadav and carried out a daring jailbreak. They climbed two walls around 30 feet high with bed sheets strung together before running away.

The CCTV cameras that could have captured the incident were also not working.


Points To Ponder:

  • How politicians use the public resources for their own purpose
  • Putting their own security over the public
  • No action on politicians/officials
  • Shouldn’t be there stricter punishment for people who sit at such position and violate the rule
