Amitpal Kaur, the key accused in the Ludhiana acid attack case, broke down after hearing the death of victim Harpreet Kaur. She appeared disturbed on Friday in day time and cried the entire night.
The news about the death of Harpreet spread in the women's jail here, where Kaur has been lodged as an undertrial. It soon became a topic of debate among the inmates.
Jail officials said Kaur, from the day she had come to the jail, was facing questions from fellow inmates as to why she had spoiled the life of an innocent girl. She used to remain mum.
As the news reached the jail on Friday, Kaur went to the barrack and sat in a corner. On Friday night she cried a lot. Jail officials confirmed this.
Jail superintendent Snehjot Dhawan said the inmates were allowed to communicate with their kin from the jail PCO. She used to call from there and get an update about the case.
Parvinder Singh, paramour of Kaur, has been undergoing treatment at the civil hospital for his broken leg and arm after he fell down on the ground from the first floor of a house in an attempt to escape when the police raided the place at Patiala to arrest him.
Parvinder wanted to open a restaurant in Patiala with the Rs 10 lakh he was to get from Kaur for throwing acid on Harpreet.
