Big Breaking: Two Life-Sentenced Prisoners Escape Silchar Central Jail, Intensive Investigation Underway

[ Date: May 11, 2023, Silchar, Assam ] – In a daring escape that has left local authorities stunned, two life-sentenced prisoners managed to flee Silchar Central Jail by tunneling under the prison walls. The escapees have been identified as Hifzur Rahman and Deep Nunia, both of whom were serving life sentences for heinous crimes.

Hifzur Rahman, hailing from Bhanga in Karimganj, was initially convicted for the high-profile murder of Naz in Karimganj, which sent shockwaves throughout the Barak Valley in 2011. Following concerns over his security, Hifzur Rahman was later transferred to Silchar Central Jail a few months ago from Karimganj jail.

Deep Nunia, a resident of Ghungoor in Silchar, was serving his life sentence for the brutal murder of a woman in Meherpur, Silchar, in 2018.

News of the jailbreak spread like wildfire, prompting immediate action from Cachar District Commissioner Rohan Kumar Jha and Superintendent of Police Numal Mahatta. The officials quickly rushed to Silchar Central Jail to assess the situation and gather pertinent details surrounding the incident.

Addressing the media, SP Numal Mahatta assured the public that an extensive investigation was already underway. He stated, “The police have launched an intensive investigation into the incident. We are leaving no stone unturned to determine the circumstances of the escape. Both Hifzur Rahman and Deep Nunia were serving life sentences.”

Authorities are now focusing their efforts on locating the escaped prisoners and returning them to custody. The local police have intensified their search operation and deployed additional personnel across the region to prevent any further unlawful activities.

The jailbreak has raised serious questions regarding the security measures and protocols in place at Silchar Central Jail. The incident will undoubtedly prompt a thorough review of the prison’s security infrastructure, procedures, and personnel to prevent future breaches.

Citizens are urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the local authorities. The police have also requested the public’s cooperation in providing any relevant information that could aid in the recapture of the escaped prisoners.

As the investigation unfolds, the authorities are hopeful that swift action and collaboration with neighboring districts will lead to the successful apprehension of Hifzur Rahman and Deep Nunia, ensuring the safety and security of the local community once again.
