Nabha jailbreak case: 1 more arrested for harbouring gangsters

Patiala: Punjab police on Wednesday arrested one more person in connection with sensational Nabha jailbreak case.

Gurpreet Singh Gopi was arrested for allegedly harbouring gangsters, a night before they attacked the high-security jail and freed six inmates – four gangsters and two militants, including Khalistan Liberation Front chief Harminder Singh Mintoo – on Sunday, police said.

It was in Gopi’s house where the plan to get the gangsters released was rehearsed before execution, they said.

Assistant jail superintendent Bhim Singh, head warden Jagmeet Singh and a sweet shop owner Tejinder Sharma were arrested yesterday on the charges of abetment and criminal conspiracy in the Nabha jail break case.
