More phones seized from Ferozepur jail


More phones seized from Ferozepur jail

Our Correspondent

Ferozepur, August 30

Thirteen mobile phones along with nine SIM cards have been recovered from the central jail premises here in the past fortnight.

Three mobile phones were recovered during a regular search operation today from two undertrials identified as Saajan and Davinder Kumar, following which a case under Section 52-A of the Prisons Act was registered against the duo.

On August 21, three mobile phones were recovered during a routine search from two undertrials — Kulbir Singh, a resident of Kamaldin village in Mamdot block, and Nirmal Singh of Khuhia Sarvar village in Fazilka — and a prisoner identified as Ashwani Kumar.

This year, over 100 mobile phones have been recovered from inmates so far. Officials say they launch search operations regularly during which these recoveries are made. However, in the absence of hi-tech facilities like jammers, they are unable to stop the usage of mobile phones and Internet on the premises.

“Even a robust electronic surveillance system is not available in the jail,” an official said. Sources said some of the dreaded gangsters and noted criminals were running their syndicates from within the jail premises.

Recently, some of the criminals were found updating their social media accounts from within the lock-ups, which had sent the alarm bell ringing.
