HYDERABAD:  Three alleged Islamic State sympathizers — high security undertrials at Chanchalguda central prison —  reportedly attempted to walk out into the open area that leads to the prison exit after attacking the prison warder and other prison officials on Saturday. The three men had been arrested, along with five others, by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for allegedly planning to carry out explosions in Hyderabad in 2016.

K Sampath

According to an official statement, on Saturday, the three men —Mohammed Ibrahim Yazdani, his brother Mohammed Iliyas Yazdani, and Ataullah Rahman  — were allowed for a Mulakath (interview) with their family members. Close to noon, the two families had come to the Chanchalguda central jail to meet the undertrials and had brought them fruit, dry fruit and other eatables. As officials were checking the eatables, the trio was waiting at Wicket Gate of Search Gate (II Main gate) in the prison to collect them. At around 12.30 pm, warder Bharath Kumar opened the wicket gate to take three other prisoners to the out-courts. In the meantime, Ibrahim, Iliyas and Ataullah moved towards the gate, despite warder K Sampath asking them not to go that way.

“The undertrials pushed warder Sampath away and entered into the main gate forcibly. They used very filthy language and abusive words towards the prison officials and also attacked the other prison staff who tried to stop them. But, the situation was brought under control, before anything went worse. A complaint is given against the trio in connection with the incident,” said Prisons DG VK Singh. Dabeerpura inspector D Venkanna Naik said based on the complaint lodged by Chanchalguda superintendent Murali Babu, a cases against the trio had been registered.
