Two undertrials, both brothers, have gone missing from Ludhiana Central Jail since last evening, police said.
The two were facing trial in separate criminal cases of theft and under the NDPS Act.
The officer said that during a routine head-count in the jail at 8 pm on Sunday evening, the officials found the two prisoners missing.
The jail authorities immediately informed the police.
Investigations are in progress, Lamba said.
