While Ramanand, 41, died while trying to board a train, a search is on for Chandra Prakash, 39, said jail authorities.

During a routine inspection on Sunday night, deputy jailor Jagdish Prasad found the two missing from a special cell. “During preliminary inquiry, it came to light that Chandra Prakash and Ramanand came out of the cell by cutting the iron bars with a blade. We have recovered the blade. They scaled the main wall using bedsheets,” said jailor R K Singh.
