A 31 -year-old Nigerian inmate in an Indian jail has reportedly broken out of jail.
According to reports, the man whose name has been given as Stephen Paul, 31, was kept in a special cell in central prison in Trichy, Tamil Nadu in India but escaped from confinement on Friday.
The prison officials are suspecting that he might have escaped by jumping the 25-foot-compound wall.
Paul was arrested for illegal stay in Tiruppur and has been in prison since July 2018. Paul was booked for attacking a Sri Lankan Tamil and a case was registered in KK Nagar police. He had served both sentences but was not released.
