Taking the police by surprise, two alleged contract-killers, who were taken to the Ghaziabad District court for a hearing, escaped from the lock-up after cutting through the window grills on Tuesday.

The two ‘killers’ —Manoj and Inderpal Singh—accused of serial killings, fled after cutting through the grill of the heavily guarded lock-up at the Ghaziabad court, the police said.

Both these men are accused of murdering four women at Noorpur in Ghaziabad in 2006.

The iron-grills were restored immediately after the incident.

Later, Ghaziabad SSP Deepak Ratan and SP (City) Vijay Bhushan visited the lock-up and enquired about the incident from the police officers on duty.

SP (City) Vijay Bhushan confirmed the incident and said that a hunt was on for the two men.

“The police are questioning family members of the two dreaded killers and hopeful to get them back soon,” said Bhushan.
