Jagtar Singh Hawara and Paramjit Singh Bheora were produced in a local court on Thursday in relation to the infamous Burail Jail break case. The statements of two people were recorded.

Kulwinder Singh,an employee at the Regional Transport Authority,Patiala,submitted records relating to a Maruti car used in the incident. He deposed that the car was owned by Mohinder Singh. The car was allegedly used by Baljit Kaur (who has expired) in facilitating the escape.

Ashwin Singh,a Mohali resident who ran JS Marketing from Sector 22,also recorded his statement. He had sold two SIM cards to Deepak Sharma,which were allegedly used by the accused. He told the court that the documents which were then submitted to him did not have Deepak’s photograph and signature.

The third witness,Rajesh Kumar,who runs Narendra Enterprises in Sirhind,evidence could not be completed as he failed to bring the original copies of the bill for the mobile coupons which were allegedly bought from him by Baljit Kaur. His evidence process was deferred to May 16.

Hawara,Bheora and their accomplice Jagtar Singh Tara along with another murder convict Devi Singh had made a sensational escape from Burail Jail in January 2004 by digging a 104-foot long tunnel. While Hawara and Bheora were arrested,Tara and Devi Singh are still at large. Both the terrorists are lodged in Tihar Jail in connection with the New Delhi blasts case of 2004.
