Case against wife

  • Neeta Deol, his wife were booked a few days back when a mobile phone was recovered from him

The Nabha police have registered a case against Kulpreet Singh, alias Neeta Deol, the main accused in the 2017 Nabha jailbreak case, for allegedly trying to commit suicide after a case was registered against his wife for trying to hand over a mobile phone to the gangster inside the jail. He has since been re-arrested.

Lodged in the New Nabha jail, Deol was rescued by Constable Sukhchain Singh, who was on a vigil inside the barracks when he saw the gangster trying to hang himself from the ceiling fan on Sunday. "He raised an alarm and the gangster was rescued," a jail official said.

A case has been registered against Deol under Section 309 of the IPC in Nabha. A couple of days ago, he was booked by the police after a mobile phone was recovered from him. His wife was also named in that FIR.

"We have registered a case against the jailed gangster for trying to commit suicide after receiving a complaint from the jail officials," said Nabha DSP Rajesh Chibber. "A separate probe is on to ascertain how the mobile phones reached the jail to a gangster who is already part of a jailbreak case," he said.

Meanwhile, intelligence agencies are already probing the role of jail officials after mobile phones were recovered from inside Punjab jails and that too from high-profile criminals.
