Authorities in India have recaptured one of two prisoners who escaped from the maximum security Tihar jail in Delhi by digging a tunnel under a wall and scaling another on Saturday.

The men, awaiting trial for burglary, were found missing when they failed to show up for roll call on Sunday.

The jail, thought to be the largest and most high-security prison complex in south Asia, houses some 13,500 prisoners, including many of India’s most feared militants, gangsters and other criminals.

Officials say they are still trying to piece together exactly how the escape was executed.
