Agartala: The council of ministers in a meeting last night constituted a two-member judicial commission headed by retired High Court judge of Tripura Justice S C Das to probe the escape of undertrial Turkish national ATM hacker Hakan Zamburakan two weeks ago from the hospital during a health check-up.
Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath said the state government has taken a serious note of the incident and there was a clear cut lapse of security inside the jail, which needs to be inquired into by the independent authority besides, police.
Along with Justice Das, retired judicial officer B K Kilikdar has also been appointed as a member of the commission.
The state police have so far arrested 11 accused including six fellow jail inmates of Zamburakan and all of them were brought to police custody.
According to the report, preliminary investigation and the confession of the accused persons revealed that at least four more persons of different professions were involved in the crime to facilitate Zamburakan to flee away.
“Investigation is heading towards the conclusion and all the accused will be booked soon,” police said.
Justifying the judicial commission Law Minister Nath said, “There are some reports that Zamburakan had been using a smartphone with internet facility inside the jail and planned the entire network of his escape from there, which is very concerning, as the mobile phone is prohibited in the jail. The judicial commission will look into all those aspects and it would noway be counterproductive to police investigation”.
According to the notification, the commission would inquire the facts of the alleged escape of the under-trial prisoner Zamburakan on July 9 last from a clinic of Agartala Govt Medical College and find out the persons responsible for such escape and also ascertain any sort of negligence in the part of deputed staff/ escort.
The Commission would complete the inquiry and submit its report along with its recommendations to the state government within three months from the date they would take charge of the office, the notification added.
Zamburakan was one of the four foreign nationals – two belonging to Turkey and two from Bangladesh were arrested in November 2019 in Belgharia of central Kolkata in connection with the hacking of a few hundred Indian bank accounts and had been in jail since then along with six others of his network.
