ADGP Prisons suspended; Dy CM alleges Pak's role

Chandigarh, Nov 27: The Government on Sunday suspended Additional Director General of Prisons MK Tiwari and dismissed Nabha jail superintendent and deputy superintendent in an action that followed this morning's jailbreak. Rohit Chaudhary has been appointed the new ADGP Prisons.

Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal also voiced apprehension that Pakistan could be behind the sensational Nabha jailbreak, saying the neighbouring country was “desperate to revive terrorism” after Indian Army conducted the surgical strike across the LoC. “Pak desperate to revive terror post surgical strike.

Could be behind jail break,” Sukhbir, who also spoke to the Security Adviser Ajit Doval after the incident, tweeted.

He said earlier in the morning that the state government had set up a special task force to track the six escapees.

“A Special Task Force has been set up under the (state) intelligence (wing) to track the criminals,” Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal said, speaking at Amritsar after a meeting with Director General of Police.

“A team under ADGP has been constituted to investigate the incident. Strict action will be taken against whoever is responsible.” In a sensational jailbreak, a group of armed men in police uniform today attacked the high-security Nabha Jail and fled with six prisoners, including Khalistan Liberation Front chief Harminder Mintoo. — PTI
