One involved in Punjab jailbreak arrested in UP

IANS  |  Lucknow 

A man, allegedly one of the gunmen who helped six prisoners, including a high-ranking terrorist, escape from Nabha jail in on Sunday morning, was arrested in Uttar Pradesh's Shamli district, police said.

Parminder Singh alias Pamma Singh, who was in a SUV, was intercepted by police in the western UP district in the evening and arrested. A haul of weapons was also recovered from the vehicle.

Police has been informed about the arrest, said ADG (Law and Order) Daljeet Chowdhary, adding Singh was being questioned for further leads on his accomplices.

A high alert was sounded across north India after armed men, said to be 10-12 in number, attacked the maximum security Nabha jail and escaped with two terrorists, including Khalistan Liberation Force's Harminder Singh Mintoo, and four gangsters, police said.
