Four drug addicts escape from prison

Four drug addicts who were being quarantined at the Kuliyapitiya Prison escaped captivity by breaking through the prison roof, last Sunday.

Four prison guards had been on duty at the time the incident took place. Prison Headquarters sources said that this was a result of negligence on the part of the prison guards.

A police chief in Kurunegala told the Daily News yesterday that about 2,890 drug addicts are being held at prisons, and that all of them are to be rehabilitated during the next three months.
