Six of the ten boys who escaped from the juvenile prison in Madurai on Tuesday night were arrested at a bus stand here this morning while they were planning to board some outstation buses, police said.
The boys, who were angered over the stern attitude of the prison warden, overpowered him, covered his face with a blanket and snatched the gate keys.
The warden managed to nab one of the boys, while the others managed to escape around midnight yesterday.
On a complaint, police registered a case and launched a hunt for the boys. They found six of the boys trying to board buses to some destination and nabbed them.
