Balbir Singh (35), who was lodged in Faridkot jail, escaped from the custody on Monday evening as he wanted to surprise his daughter on her birthday at his residence in a Moga village.

However, due to rain and in the absence of public transport, he could not reach his home to wish his daughter on Monday. After spending the night at a bus stand, when he reached his house at Chugha village in the early hours on Tuesday, he was welcomed not by his family, but by the police.

Immediately after Balbir's escape, a police team had rushed to his village. The cops stayed there after they learnt about his daughter's birthday. Balbir was back in the jail 15 hours after his escape.

"Balbir has already undergone seven-month imprisonment. We were expecting his release on parole next month due to his good conduct," said a senior jail official.

Now, besides losing his chance of getting parole, Balbir would be punished with imprisonment for a term which might extend up to three years or a fine or both under Section 174(A) of the IPC, said the authorities.

A constable in the jail has been placed under suspension for the dereliction of duty.
