Nakhon Si Thammarat police have launched a hunt for fourdrug suspects after they broke off a police cell in Muang district overnight and escaped.
Initial investigation showed that the jail break happened after midnight of Aug 10 as a duty police officer Pol Sub Lt Dong Utarnat was escorting a drug suspect Chinoros Phrachomklao back to his cell at Muang Nakhon Si Thammarat police station station after the primary interrogation.
As the officer was opening the cell gate, four drug suspects inside the cell pushed the gate backwards by force sending the officer to fall on the ground.
The four then ran out at all directions.
The daring jailbreak was immediately reported to the police commander of the province and hunt was then ordered.
