A prisoner serving a jail term in Kapurthala Modern Jail for a murder, fled from the Civil Hospital Wednesday. He was taken to the hospital for checkup as he was suffering from Hepatitis C virus. He managed to flee when a lab technician was taking his blood sample. Three more inmates were also taken to the hospital. SSP Kapurthala Sandip Kumar Sharma said the prisoner was undergoing a sentence at the jail.
A case has been registered, he said.
