D.I Khan jailbreak report All concerned failed to perform their duties.

PESHAWAR -- A three member committee formed to probe the Dera Ismail Khan jailbreak has completed its investigation and submitted the report to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government.

The report states that the DS, DPO, Elite Force and jail officials failed in performing their duties. The attack was aimed at freeing 14 prisoners, while the rest of the prisoners were set free to occupy the administration.

The report adds that the jailbreak was planned by experienced individuals who were not locals.

The committee was formed by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak and comprised of Senior Member Board of Revenue Waqar Ayub, Special Secretary Home Department Syed Alamgir Shah and Additional Inspector General Police Akhtar Ali Shah.

During its probe, the committee recorded statements of over 100 people including those of the KP chief minister, chief secretary and IG Police.

On July 30 in one of the biggest jailbreaks in the history of Pakistan, militants helped 243 prisoners escape for the Dera Ismail Khan prison after killing 12 people including six policemen. During the jailbreak five militants were also killed by security forces.

In April 2012, around 300 prisoners had escaped during a similar jailbreak in Bannu.
