As per reports, in the aftermath of Mexico prison break resulting in escape of 29 inmates of the prison in Ciudad Victoria, 14 inmates still remain at large.
The prisoners used a five meters deep and 40 meters long tunnel to escape the prison underneath the prison wall.
While escaping, a man was shot by one of the inmates.
20 of the inmates who escaped the prison were incarcerated for “common” crimes such as kidnapping, homicide and robbery. Out of the nine who were convicted for “federal” crimes such as drug trafficking and carrying weapons etc, four were members of organized crime organizations.
Reports further say that the prison which was built in 1940, lacks security features and is considered outdated.
