Nabha (Punjab), 28 Nov 2016 : In a sensational jailbreak, armed men attacked the high security Nabha jail in Punjab and escaped with two terrorists, including Khalistan Liberation Force chief Harminder Singh Mintoo, and four gangsters on Sunday, police said.

Gangsters Vicky Gonder, Gurpreet Sekhon, Neeta Deol and Vikramjit also escaped.
The Punjab Police and security agencies have cordoned off the area and a massive search operation has been launched to nab the escaped prisoners.
The attackers, about 10-12 in number and carrying weapons, entered the jail premises in two cars, including a Toyota Fortuner SUV.
