Darpan News Desk IANS, 29 Jun, 2019 12:35 AM

    Police on Friday booked 22 inmates for allegedly attacking cops and damaging property at Central Jail on Tajpur Road here on Thursday.

     

    A case has been registered against the accused at the Division Number 7 police station.

    An undertrail prisoner, Aman Kumar alias Deepak, has been missing since the violence, Punjab's Jail Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa has confirmed. Police sources said they suspect he could have used the confusion that followed the violence to escape.

    In his statement, Jail Superintendent Shamsher Singh said two groups of gangsters had entered into a scuffle. When the cops tried to pacify them, the inmates attacked the jail staff with bricks and stones, he alleged.


    He claimed that the inmates put on fire gas cylinders, the record room, a tractor and another vehicle in the jail. The cops opened firing in the air to control the situation, he said.


    An inmate was killed and 11 people--five inmates and six police personnel--were injured.


    The deceased was identified as Ajit Baba, who died after being hit a bullet.


    Deputy Commissioner Pradeep Kumar Aggrawal had on Thursday said that according to preliminary information, the violence broke out after the news of the death of an inmate, Sunny Sood, at Rajindra Hospital in Patiala. Sood was an undertrial in an NDPS Act case.
