Bhubaneswar, May 28 - Thirteen of the 27 inmates who escaped from a state-run juvenile home in Odisha's Ganjam district two days ago after assaulting its superintendent and other staff have been nabbed, police said Wednesday.

We have nabbed 13 of them from different places of Berhampur town. Search is on to nab other run away inmates, Superintendent of Police A.K.Singh told IANS.

The delinquents attacked with wood planks and vegetable cutters four personnel, including superintendent S.K. Mohanty Monday evening at the juvenile home in Berhampur town, 180 km from state capital Bhubaneswar, and fled.

They had also made similar attacks on the staff a number of times in the past, care-taker K.P. Pati had said.

They attacked us so that they could escape. I do not think there was any other reason behind this incident, he said.

The juvenile home has 84 juveniles implicated in various cases, including rape, murder, and dacoity, he said.
