Amal, an Assistant Prison Officer, has been suspended in connection with the escape of a man from Poojappura Central Jail. The jail chief also ordered a departmental inquiry.

Zahir Hussain, a resident of Thoothukudi, has escaped from jail. The incident took place this morning. Zahir Hussain was among the inmates who went to work in the laundry room of the jail compound. Zahir Hussain escaped because of the lack of a wall around the laundry room at the back of the jail.

According to police, the man went down the road near the laundry, changed his clothes, bought a cigarette from a shop at the junction, and drove to Thambanur. It is concluded that Zahir boarded the bus from the KSRTC stand to Kaliyikavila.

Zahir Hussain was sentenced to life imprisonment in a 2004 murder case registered by the Fort Police. He arrived at Central Jail in 2017 and has been working in the laundry for the past two years, prison officials said. The jail department and police have intensified the search.
