FIVE dangerous criminals are on the run after they escaped from police cells in Cato Manor yesterday morning. The awaiting trial prisoners, two of them arrested in connection with the murder of policemen during a cash heist last month, cut through prison bars using a hacksaw and escaped through the roof.

“At 3 am during a routine cell visit, police officials discovered that prisoners from one of the holding cells had escaped.” Naicker said they had cut the prison bars in the prison’s exercise area and escaped through the roof. A task team has been set up to investigate and ensure the speedy arrest of the escapees. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
