Singh along with Khalistan Liberation Front militant outfit Harminder Mintoo and four other prisoners escaped after armed men in police uniform stormed the high-security Nabha prison at Patiala in Punjab on 27 November.

Singh was arrested from Kairana in Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli district on the day itself when the getaway vehicle was stopped at a police picket.

Superintendent of district jail Rakesh Singh said the accused, Parminder Singh, was shifted to a high security barrack in Muzaffarnagar on Monday.

No inmate is allowed to meet him, he said, adding that security of the jail has been upped.

An alert has been sounded in 65 district jails of Uttar Pradesh in the wake of the Nabha jailbreak.
