The Nabha police have registered a case against Kulpreet Singh alias Neeta Deol, who is an accused in the 2017 Nabha jailbreak case, for allegedly trying to commit suicide on Sunday night.

He did this allegedly after the police registered a case against his wife for smuggling a moblie phone into the jail.

Put up at the Nabha jail, Deol was rescued by constable Sukhchain Singh, who saw Deol trying to hang himself from a ceiling fan.

He raised an alarm and the jailed gangster was rescued, said jail officials in their complaint. The case has been registered under Section 309 of the IPC at Nabha.

A couple of days earlier, he was booked after a mobile phone was seized from him. His wife was also named in the FIR, and allegedly perturbed over this the gangster tried to hang himself.

In 2017, assistant jail superintendent Rupa Singh and woman constable Karanjot Sharma had been arrested for allegedly helping Deol with drugs, SIM cards and mobile phones besides cash at the Patiala Central Jail where he was then lodged.

Their arrests came after the interrogation of student leaders Armandeep Singh Cheema of Patiala and Harman Singh Virk of Samana, who were arrested near Rajpura.

"The two were in touch with Nabha jailbreak accused Neeta Deol and Gurpreet Sekhon, for whom they arranged drugs," the police had said.
