Amid a series of dramatic consequences, the 13 accused who gained entry into the special sub-jail here to kill a prisoner were shifted to the prison in Kalapet on Friday. The police took into custody the 13 accused who attacked a warder after entering the sub-jail in the early hours of Thursday at two different places on the same day.
They, however, could not present them before the Magistrate as the sub-judge was out of station. On Friday morning, the accused were presented before the Yanam Administrative Officer, Ganesan, who has magisterial powers, and were given a week-long remand. Trouble began when the police sent the accused to the special sub-jail for remand.
