They will be expelled, for now, but able to revisit India only on legal grounds later obtaining a visa told Krishna. Sources in Luksar jail told the immigrants created a ruckus after being caught on 12th July night.
It became very challenging to manage them at first. They keep on shouting that they are not criminals and also declined to enter the jail. It lasted for about 05 hours, later which the 19 women were sent in the barracks for women meanwhile the 11 men were sent to the barrack no. 7,” a jail official said to media.
Krishna told the police were hunting for the 17 immigrants who eluded from the Police Lines hospital after separating a piece of cardboard utilized to cover a glass whose grilles had broken. We are asking the police who were on duty on that day at the Police Lines when the detainees escaped. We are sincerely trying to track them, and they would be caught soon, he told.
