Warangal (Telangana): Two prisoners escaped from Warangal Central Jail in the wee hours on Saturday, a senior official said.
According to the DIG Kesava Naidu, Rajesh Yadav and Saink Singh escaped by using bedsheets as a rope.
Rajesh Yadav and Saink Singh belong to Bihar. While Yadav was convicted in a murder case, Singh was in jail in connection with a court martial.
They were shifted from Cherlapalli jail in Hyderabad to Warangal Central jail two months ago.
Police is on hunt for them.
Earlier, eight members of the banned Students of Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), had allegedly killed a head constable and fled by scaling the high wall of the Bhopal central jail using a rope made from bed sheets on October 31, 2016.
