Nalanda (Bihar) [India], May 14 (ANI): Eight people were arrested for negligence of duty after four child prisoners escaped by cutting the rods of the window of a juvenile rehabilitation home in Deepnagar, Nalanda district on Monday.
The arrested people included a Superintendent, home guard personnel and cook of the juvenile rehabilitation home.
Vrijesh Mishra, the Assistant Director of Child Protection unit said that the escape of the four children meant there was a big lapse in security at the centre.
One of the four prisoners who escaped was an accused in the famous Ritik murder case of Ekangarsarai while the rest were from Bhaisasur, Asthawan and Nawada village.
Earlier on May 3, many objectionable materials were recovered by the District Collector in a raid conducted at the rehabilitation home. The Superintendent was taken to task back then, but the negligence continued. (ANI)
