CHANDIGARH: The 1993 Delhi bomb blast case convict Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar was on Friday shifted from Tihar Jail to Amritsar Central Jail via road, amid tight police security.

On reaching Amritsar Central Jail, he was immediately referred to Government Guru Nanak Dev Hospital for a fresh medical examination and a checkup at the psychiatric ward.

Amritsar Deputy Commissioner of Police Parmpal Singh said all necessary arrangements have been made both in the jail and civil hospital as they had received an official communication about the shifting of Bhullar.

Doctors would go through the medical history of Bhullar to decide whether he should be lodged in the jail barrack or admitted to jail hospital for treatment.

Earlier, the Delhi Government had approved the transfer of Bhullar from Tihar and the Punjab Government had agreed to lodge him in a prison in the state.

Bhullar’s wife Navneet Kaur, who had migrated to Canada with her in-laws in 1994, had sought the shifting of Bhullar to Amritsar Jail citing his poor health. Kaur’s parental house is located at Ranjiv Avenue in Amritsar.  

Bhullar has been in jail for the last two decades.
