The Facebook page of Kulpreet Singh, alias Neeta, one of the six prisoners who escaped from Nabha Jail in Patiala in the early hours of Sunday, was updated at 1.11 pm, and the post appeared to suggest that the police are allegedly “enacting a drama on the lines of the Bhopal encounter”. It also alleged that the entire episode may be a “political stunt”. The police said the post could have been put up by Neeta’s brother, but did not rule out the possibility that Neeta himself had done it.

The post, written in Roman-scripted Punjabi, stated: “Police khel rahi a bhupal encounter di tarj te drama. Ehna mundeya de bhajjan di koi vajaa ni disdi. Ehna de case ch koi sabuut ni c. 1-2 saal ch bari ho jande. Eh koi election stunt v ho sakda. Saanu saade munde sahi slaamat vapis Kare. Police kise de v gharde te fake case pa sakdi. Phela v mere brother te mere dad te jhotha case paya si . Sade kol proof ne. Police di chal a, eda nahi phaj sakde munde. Police drama karn layi, kise v munde nu kush v hoya. Police da kasoor howega share this post fast. (The police are enacting a drama on the lines of the Bhopal encounter; these boys had no reason to escape. There was no evidence against them and they would have come out in one or two years. It could be an election stunt as well. We want our boys back safely. The police can book anyone’s family member in a false case. Earlier, my brother and father were booked in a false case; we have proof. It is a police game as they cannot escape like this. If anything happens to the boys, then the police will be responsible).”
