London, Sep 7 (PTI) A manhunt is on across airports and ports of the UK on Thursday after a terrorist suspect escaped from a London prison where diamond merchant Nirav Modi, who is wanted in India on fraud and money charges, has also been lodged for over three years.

Former British Army soldier Daniel Abed Khalife, 21, who was awaiting trial on charges of breaching the UK’s Official Secrets Act at Wandsworth Prison in south-west London, escaped allegedly by clinging to the under-carriage of a delivery van.

The Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command issued an urgent public appeal on Wednesday to help trace the suspect following his escape from one of the UK’s largest and overcrowded prisons.
