Eight terrorists of the banned outfit (Students Islamic Movement of India) SIMI staged a daring jailbreak and managed to flee from Bhopal central jail early on October 31.

The prisoners performed the escape after killing the security guard and scaling the prison wall with the help of bed sheets, the Police said.

DIG Bhopal Raman Singh said the terrorists slit the guard’s throat with a steel plate and glass after overpowering him.

SIMI is a banned Islamist fundamentalist organisation that was formed in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, in April 1977.

What’s surprising is that this was not the first time that SIMI terrorists have escaped from jail in Madhya Pradesh.

In 2013, seven terror suspects from SIMI cut the iron bars of a Khandwa jail’s bathroom window and escaped after stabbing two security guards. They stole rifles and wireless sets.
