Islamabad, April 22 (IANS) As many as 143 of the 384 inmates who fled a prison in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province following an audacious Taliban attack are back in jail, an official said.


Provincial Home Secretary Azam Khan told the Voice of America that out of 384 prisoners who fled, 108 have voluntarily returned while 35 had been re-arrested.


Taliban militants struck at the Bannu jail April 15 and freed the prisoners. At least 20 high profile prisoners, including one who was involved in an attack on former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, were among those who escaped.


Four teams had been constituted to ensure the capture of all the escaped detainees, Dawn reported.


Adnan Rashid, a high-profile prisoner, has been welcomed back into the Taliban fold, showed a dramatic video telecast on DawnNews.


The video clip shows him talking in Pashtu with his hosts.
