Mobiles seized from under trial prisoner in Ferozepur jail

Ferozepur, May 10

During the surprise checking in the jail, two mobiles were recovered from the inmate. Frequent recoveries of mobiles and other banned items have exposed the security arrangements and the purpose of keeping the criminals away from society as punishment is also lost.

During last year, around 300 mobiles and other banned items were found and during the current year, within four months period, more than 150 have been recovered.

Sometimes, the packets are also thrown from the back of the jail compound as the jail is surrounded by a huge open space on two sides and one side with high-rising buildings. Hence it is difficult to ascertain who had thrown the packet as they disappear after throwing.

As per the crime report, the surprise checking of ward number 3 at chakki number 3, on suspicion, the search of Vishal Sharma under trial prisoner was carried out and two mobiles one with battery and without SIM card and 52-A and further investigations are on with Pawan Kumar, IO.

No, follow-up of the outcome of the recovery of mobiles has been shared with the media about the purpose of its usage. Taking the jail inmates on remand for investigation is said to be the main hurdle and the matter ends with simple registration of the cases.
