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.
