Imphal, Jan 23: Three Myanmarese nationals who were under judicial custody in Manipur since the last few months have escaped from a temporary jail in the northeastern border state, Police sources here said on Monday.

The incident took place at Sadbhavna Mandap, Khominthang, New Lamka which is located about 65 km south of the state capital- Imphal in Churachandpur district around 8am on Sunday, sources said.

A police official when contacted on phone confirmed the news. He even informed that an investigation is undertaken in connection with the incident.

The three Myanmarese have been identified as Wimnintay (28) Win Naing Thon (27) and Biaka (17)- all from Myanmar.

Police sources also informed that they were detained for illegally entering India under the Foreigner Act and detained at the temporary jail of the Churachandpur district.

Win Naing Thon and Winmintay have been at the temporary jail since April 4, 2021, while Biaka was detained on March 29 last year. All three reportedly fled from the jail and were missing since Sunday morning.
