Kashimpur Central Jail authorities suspended two more prison guards on Saturday following the escape of a prisoner from the prison in Gazipur on Thursday night.

Prisoner Abu Bakar Siddique, who carries a life sentence, went missing from Kashimpur Central Jail-2 on Thursday evening.

A case was filed on Friday with the Konabari police station against convict Abu Bakr Siddiq who has escaped from the Kashimpur-2 jail.

Earlier on Friday, action has been taken against 12 prison guards of the Kashimpur jail. Six of them have been suspended and departmental action has been taken against the other six.

Kashimpur-2 jail senior superintendent Jahanara Begum said it was suspected that Abu Bakar Siddiq had scaled the 18 foot prison wall and escaped.
