**Patnagarh** In a failed attempt, 7 prisoners tried to escape from Patnagarh sub-jail on Thursday morning. The prime accused in parcel bomb tragedy Punjilal Meher is also stationed in that jail.
It is believed that the prisoners were instigated by Punjilal, but there are no confirmed reports.
Talking to media persons, DGP RP Sharma said, “Some prisoners tried to flee. It is yet to be ascertained whether there is any role of Punjilal Meher in this attempted jail break.”
