Eight SIMI activists who pulled off a daring prison break and escaped in the wee hours after killing a security guard at the Bhopal Central Jail here, were hunted down and killed in a police encounter on the city outskirts.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) will probe the jailbreak involving eight terrorists of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).

This is the second major jail break by operatives of banned SIMI in three years after the sensational escape by seven members of the group from a jail in Khandwa in Madhya Pradesh in 2013.

The Union Home Ministry has sought a detailed report from the Madhya Pradesh government on the jail break whether there was any lapse on the part of the jail administration and the steps taken to check such incidents.

                        All the things seems to be conspiracy ..only simi were escaped ! Why not others if the jail was breaked .? lt;br/gt;2.how police was able to find all of them together ? lt;br/gt;3. Why police encountered all of them ? Why police not arrested 1 or 2. Although they were escape from jail , so presumed they must not had weapons . ! lt;br/gt;4. If they were accoused of vyapam which later charged different.lt;br/gt;These all things mean to me like Bollywood movie ..lt;br/gt;So i here bend to favour digvijay singh.

                          Diggi is quite right this time, now people think they can cover any crime with a pinch of nationalism and patriotism.

                            Diggy is lying as always. He never proposed ban on SIMI but when NDA was banning SIMI Congress had opposed it. When the ban looked imminent they started demanding ban on RSS and Bajrang Dal along with SIMI.

                              Why is Diggy mentioning riots when terrorists are killed? Who can do it? Will it be ordinary muslims or paid Congress agents? Who will stoke this fire - paid congi agents in media

                                Why Congress party leaders more compionate for the lives of terrorists than for the lives of law abiding citizens and soldiers who lose their lives falling victims to the evil designs of these terrorists ??? lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Can anyone please show me the light to see the Congress party as a party which stands to build a stronger nation with happiness and prosperity to its law abiding people ?

                                  Let us not blame Digvijay Singh or Congress party to question encounter carried by State Govt as it is more interested in Votes Bank Politics than national Interest and its . Congress Leaders want to get back their minority votes bank which Congress Party enjo for 60 years of its Rule.It has now golden opportunity to win them with such statements.However Minorities have decided not to think of Congress any more due to its lip service to them without doing any thing expect to see that both Majority of and Muslim Minority does not come together and live peacefully. but hate each other so that it could retain its power by divide and rule policy.Of late minorities have realised Congress's divide and rule principle and finally shifted en me to other Parties like SP/RJD/TMC/NCP/BSP. and many others except BJP and Congress which it considers two sides of the same coin.

                                      Neither - I wish Congress disappears and in its place, a genuine modern non-religious party emerges.
