Ludhiana, April 7

Additional DCP 4 Rupinder Kaur Sra, along with ACP (East) Davinder Chaudhary, visited the Ludhiana Central Jail today to inspect the presence of notorious elements active outside the jail.

It has been found that anti-social elements throw drugs, mobile phones and other objectionable items from outside the jail to jail inmates. Authorities have tried to stop the practice but have failed to identify the culprits.

The ADCP also met with jail superintendent Rajeev Arora and discussed the security concerns inside and outside the jail in detail.

ADCP Sra visited several points on the periphery and back-end locations of the jail. She said there was an urgent need to strengthen jail security on the periphery. Various other issues were also discussed by the team, she added.

“Sensitive points that need static coverage have been highlighted and patrolling by PCR motorbikes to check all sorts of nefarious activities on the periphery will be ensured. Help from surveillance teams may be sought to keep a secret vigil to catch prohibited activities,” the ADCP said.

Sources said the police had been wanting to put a stop on the supply of drugs and mobile phones into the jail by placing cops in civvies outside it. Despite strict security inside the jail, the inmates were enjoying access to banned items from outside. —TNS
