+ve undertrial escapes, 3 cops suspended

Bathinda, March 27

Three policemen who were escorting a Covid-positive undertrial at the Civil Hospital were suspended for negligence after he fled by jumping from an inmate ward here.

A case has been registered against ASI Ravinder Singh and constables Jagtar Singh and Gurbaldev Singh. A case has also been registered against undertrial Avtar Singh.

The hunt is on to nab the undertrial. The police are conducting raids at the houses of his relatives and family.

Many prisoners have escaped from the ward at the Civil Hospital by dodging the security personnel in the past, but no efforts have been made to tighten the security.

Avtar Singh, a resident of Raikhana village in Bathinda, was arrested a few days ago by a team of CIA-1 from Chakka Fateh Singh Wala village with 1,300 narcotic tablets. — TNS
