According to the information, prisoners are brought from the Central Jail for appearing in various courts located in the Session Court premises.

As it was a Sunday, there was no movement of the parties in the court premises and there were no other people except the lawyers.
In such a situation, it is being suspected that the friends of a prisoner have dug a tunnel after seeing the opportunity. However, due to the concrete floor inside the temporary jail, the mouth of the tunnel could not open inside the jail. It is also possible that after locking the prisoners , the prisoners would put weights on top of the tunnel from inside and try to escape when the tunnel opens.

Here, precautionary policemen conduct spot checks before locking in temporary jails. Incidents of the accused trying to escape from the Sessions Court premises have happened many times in the past.
