Magistrate investigation will be done in the entire matter. Capt Amarinder Singh has asked the jail minister to sack the guilty employees. Please tell that Amritsar Jail is a very sensitive jail in Punjab. Accordingly, the security system is also tight here. In such a situation, the escape of the prisoners by breaking the prison wall is questioning the whole system. Recently CRPF was also deployed in Amritsar Jail.
