An escaped prisoner from Punjab

Amongst the six inmates who had escaped from Punjab's Nabha jail, one of the inmates has been arrested in Indore along with another person, who is accused of heinous crimes in Punjab.

The escaped prisoners carried a reward of Rs 5 lakh after a group of gun-toting men in police uniforms stormed Punjab's Nabha Central Jail early on 27 November 2016 and freed two terrorists - including the head of Khalistan Liberation Force, terrorist Harminder Singh Mintoo - and four criminals.


"Kulpreet Singh Deol alias Neeta (the inmates who had escaped from the Nabha jail) and Sunil Kalra alias Shailla (a dreaded criminal in Punjab) were apprehended from Khajrana area in the city from a residential flat," DIG Harinarayanchari Mishra told PTI.

He said that the duo was arrested after interrogation of some suspected persons in the area. Police also recovered eight mobile phones, laptop, and Rs. 92,000 cash from them.

The DIG further said that the Punjab police has been informed about the arrest. The accused had reached Indore a few days ago and had rented a flat, he said.
