Three minor boys escaped from a juvenile remand centre in Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh on Thursday, an official said.
One of them was accused in an attempt to murder case while the two others were facing charges of abduction and theft, Superintendent of Police Amit Sanghi said.
A bathroom at the juvenile home, located in Civil Lines area, was under-construction and the boys apparently escaped from an open space there around 9 am, a source said.
The juvenile home authorities came to know about the incident during the routine head count of inmates and immediately alerted the police, the source said.
"Search is on for the three boys," Sanghi said.
One of the boys belonged to Vidisha district while the other two were from Sagar, the source added.
