Seven arrested for trying to free undertrials
Faridkot: Seven persons have been arrested for allegedly trying to help three undertrials escape from police custody outside a court complex here, officials said.
Three undertrials were on Wednesday brought from Jalandhar for a court hearing in a case. Police received a tip off that seven accomplices would attempt to free the accused from police custody by launching an attack on the cops, SP Dilbag Singh said.
Police officials swung into action after the tip off and arrested the accomplices under various sections of IPC, Singh said.
They also recovered sharp-edged weapons from their possession.
