Police are still on the hunt for three alleged dangerous criminals who escaped from the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Thursday.

These criminals made their escape while the prison truck was reversing for the trio to get inside and be taken back to prison. They ran from the court premises and were allegedly picked up by a car which had been waiting for them.

Police spokesperson, Captain Nqobile Gwala, said, “The prisoners are still being sought.”
