Panchkula : Three armed men arrived at the Sector 6 General Hospital here on Saturday, used pepper spray on staff and police and freed one of their men from police custody. The police had brought two undertrials--Deepak, an accused in a robbery case, and Mohit--from Ambala Jail for treatment.                    

The men used pepper spray on the staff and policemen, opened fire and freed Deepak from custody; Mohit is still in custody. In the ensuing melee, five people, including three nurses, fell unconscious and are being treated at the hospital. A  constable was also beaten up by the men. Three policemen--Rakesh, Sukhdev and Roshan Lal--and security guard Pradeep were also injured.
