90 extremely dangerous prisoners has been shifted to other jails in the country from Karachi Central Jail.

According to reports, following the recent prison break incidents in Karachi Central Jail, 80 high-profile prisoners have been shifted to Sukkur, eight to Larkana Jail and two to Central Jail Rawalpindi

In the major prisoners transfers in the history of Pakistan, the prisoners were transferred in phases.

Out of these 90 high profile prisoners, 68 prisoners will be handed over to military courts for trial.

The jail administration has also notified the Sindh home department regarding the transfer of prisoners.

The decision to transfer prisoners was taken by the Sindh apex committee following the escape of two under-trial prisoners, Sheikh Muhammad alias Firon and Ahmed Khan alias Manako in June.

The two, who reportedly belonged to the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, had managed to escape from the jail’s judicial complex, where they were brought for a hearing.

The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) arrested the both militants in 2013 over involvement in dozens of targeted killings.
