Amritsar, January 22

Even as the Punjab Government’s proposal to install 4G jammers inside high security jails was yet to see the light of day, seizure of mobile phones continues unabated at the Amritsar Central Jail.

In a surprise search operation on Thursday evening, the jail authorities confiscated six mobile phones from five inmates, including notorious criminals, Kartik Bhatti, alias Ghora, a resident of Gilwali Gate, and Aman Malik, a resident of Kot Mit Singh. The authorities seized two mobiles from Malik alone. He is said to be an associate of notorious gangster, Jaggu Bhagwanpuria, and his accomplice, Bobby Malhotra.

According to jail authorities, two mobile phones were recovered from Ajay Kumar, alias Nanu, of Gilwali Gate. A mobile phone was recovered from Ghora while another phone was seized from Parveen Sabharwal, who cheated a number people while posing as a CBI officer.

An ‘indigenous’ mobile charger was recovered from the possession of Jaspal Singh, alias Jassa, of Khadoor Sahib.

A jail official said all the accused were lodged at room number 3 of barrack number 6. He said the jail authorities got specific input that several inmates were having mobile phones and were using the same for continuing their nefarious activities.

He said the search operation was carried out with help of paramilitary jawans.

A complaint was lodged with the Islamabad police on the statement of Davinder Singh, Assistant Superintendent, Central Jail. The police have registered a case under Sections 42 and 52-A of the Prisons Act against them.

Three booked for criminal breach of trust

A man has accused his son’s in-laws for criminal breach of trust after they sold his car.

The accused have been identified as Kabal Singh, his wife Kiran Kaur, and brother Dilbagh Singh, all residents of Dharad village, falling under the jurisdiction of Jandiala police station. Sukhdev Singh (53), a resident of Dheere Kot village, stated in his complaint (submitted in October last year) that his son Akashdeep Singh got married to Gurnoor Kaur of Dharad village three years ago.

He said after marriage, Gurnoor went to Canada for studies and they bore all the expenditure. He said in January 2018, his son Akashdeep went to meet his sister Ranbir Kaur, who lives in Australia. He said in March 2018, he also went to Australia.

He alleged as there was no other member in the house, they handed over their car to Akashdeep’s in-laws for the time being. He said when they came back, they found that the accused had sold their car to Kirpal Singh of Chogwaan for Rs 5.6 lakh.

The complainant said when they asked about the decision, instead of returning car or money, Akashdeep’s in-laws broke the marriage.

On January 21, the Jandiala police registered a case under Sections 406 and 120-B of the IPC against the accused. No arrest has been made to date.
