Parminder Singh, the alleged "mastermind" of the daring daylight jailbreak in Punjab, has been shifted to a high security prison in the district, jail officials said on Tuesday.
Singh along with Khalistan Liberation Front militant outfit Harminder Mintoo and four other prisoners escaped after armed men in police uniform stormed the high-security Nabha prison at Patiala in Punjab on November 27.
Singh was arrested from Kairana in Uttar Pradesh's Shamli district on the day itself when the getaway vehicle was stopped at a police picket.
Superintendent of district jail Rakesh Singh said the accused, Parminder Singh, was shifted to a high security barrack here on Monday.
No inmate is allowed to meet him, he said, adding that security of the jail has been upped.
An alert has been sounded in 65 district jails of Uttar Pradesh in the wake of the Nabha jailbreak.
