The investigation will be conducted under the supervision of Assistant Prison Superintendent of Matara.

29 inmates of the Galle prison were transported to Baddegama to be produced before Baddegama Magistrate yesterday.
 
Later, two prison guards have taken a sick prisoner to the hospital while another one took an inmate to obtain fingerprints.
 
Then only three prison guards were left for the guard of 27 inmates in the court premises.
 
When the inmate who gave fingerprints was put back into the court cell, 5 of the inmates had escaped.
 
Meanwhile, two guards have been hospitalized after they got injured during a scuffle with the escapees.
