    Seven SIMI operatives flee from Madhya Pradesh jail, attack cops

    INDORE: Seven suspected operatives of the banned Student Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) escaped from the Khandwa district jail on Tuesday morning.

    The group of seven, after escaping from jail, attacked constables who were a part of a motor cycle-borne night police patrol team and stabbed two of them near the Sarvodaya Nagar area (5 km from jail). They later escaped with the service rifles of the cops at around 4 am.

    The district administration has announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh for any information on the escaped prisoners.

    The seven undertrials committed the jailbreak at around 3am after cutting through the window railings of jail bathrooms.

    The seven, Amjad, Zakir, Guddu, Aslam, Abu Faizal, Ezazuddin and Abid, were arrested in the last two years in connection with terror acts.

    However, according to reports, one of them, Abid, has been nabbed in Sarvodaya colony area of Indore.

    According to SP (Khandwa) a manhunt has been launched to nab the absconders and neighbouring districts have been alerted.

    "A high alert has been sounded and a massive search operation has been launched in Indore," DIG (Indore Range) Rakesh Gupta said.

    The jail minister of Madhya Pradesh Antar Singh Arya has ordered a high level probe in the incident.

    *************************************

    Today's TOI report states that the Prison does not have a perimeter fencing or even searchlights and the lone watch tower was not manned.

    Now, if these people are terrorists and dreaded ones at that, how is it that they are confined in such a loosely organised prison?

    The attitude of the Govt is only hot air about terrorism to soothe the nerves, when in actuality the whole issue is taken in a non serious manner.

    At every turn of event, the manner in which the Nation is progressing is getting most disheartening and it appears that only the politicians are getting themselves protected with security elements armed to the teeth and in numbers that would appear to be Julius Caesar leading his Legions!

    MP jailbreak: 3 of 6 Simi men wanted to kill judges

    In a daring pre-dawn jailbreak on Monday, seven prisoners, six of them activists of the banned Simi, braved a hail of bullets and stabbed policemen to escape from a prison in Madhya Pradesh. Three of them were part of a plot to kill three judges who gave a decisive judgment in the Ram temple case, HT has learnt.

    While Abid Mirza, a terror accused, was arrested hours after fleeing Khandwa jail, Students Islamic Movement of India activists Aslam Ayub, Abu Faisal alias Doctor, Sheikh Mehboob, Mohd Ejajuddin, Zakir Badul and Amjad Khan alias Dawood are still on the run.

    Security agencies have sounded an alarm as Faisal, believed to be the leader of the MP module of the Simi, robbed two banks in Bhopal in 2011 allegedly to finance jihad in India, a counterterror official told HT.

    All the six Simi men but Amjad are accused of murdering an anti-terror squad constable on November 11, 2009. While making their escape after the murder, the men also gunned down a bank manager and an advocate. Mirza is accused of planting a bomb in a nursing home in Khandwa in 2010.

    The counterterror official said Faisal, Aslam and Badul arrived in Lucknow in November 2010 to target justice SU Khan, justice DV Sharma and justice Sudhir Agarwal of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court.

    In a 2:1 majority judgment on September 30, 2010, the three ruled that one-third of the disputed land in Ayodhya would go to the Sunni Waqf Board, a third to the Nirmohi Akhara and one-third to ‘Ram Lalla’.

    The Simi men receed the high court area for nearly two months. Faisal even called in another Simi activist for help.

    The plan was to gun down the judges but they were arrested in June 2011 for the constable’s murder, said the official.

    On Monday, the seven men bored a hole in a toilet wall and then used blankets and bedsheets to scale the jail wall between 2am and 3am. They then attacked a police patrol of four constables with knives, snatched their weapons and wireless sets and escaped on their motorcycles, said the police.

    They had to abandon the two bikes after they got stuck in the mud 500m away from the jail, said sources.

    Mirza did not follow the six and fled to nearby Sarvodaya Nagar. He was sleeping on the roof of a house when he was spotted by the owner and was arrested, ASP Khandwa Gopal Khandel told HT.

    Senior police officials are camping in the city and a massive combing operation is on. Five jail officials have been suspended.

    This happened right after Shinde's whining of secularism to be practised in jails.
