Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) chief Harminder Singh Mintoo was brought to government Rajindra hospital following complaints of high blood pressure and pain in heart, on Sunday night. He was examined in the intensive care unit (ICU) of the hospital, where the doctors diagnosed him suffering from a heart disease.

Mintoo is one of the main accused in Nabha jailbreak case, in which six criminal had escaped from high security Nabha jail on November 27. He was arrested on November 28 from a railway station in New Delhi. Medical superintendent Dr BS Brar said after normalising his blood pressure, he has been referred to Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh, on Monday evening for further treatment.

“Mintoo was earlier a heart patient and was getting treatment from the cardiology department but has not visited the hospital since past several months, due to which his condition has aggravated,” a doctor said. Meanwhile, a senior police officer said that Mintoo will be taken to PGIMER under high security, for which the district police has been asked to make adequate arrangements.
