Threat call to CM Bhajanlal: 3 prisoners produced in court; action taken against Jaipur central jail staff
The discovery of a mobile phone inside the jail raises concerns about security measures.
JAIPUR: Action has been taken in the case of a threat to shoot the Chief Minister by calling 100 from Jaipur Central Jail. Minister of State for Home, Jawahar Singh, has asked DG Jail Bhupendra Dak for a full report on the incident. As a result, Acting Jail Superintendent Omprakash has been removed from his position.
The three accused who made threats against the Chief Minister were produced in court and are now being held in custody for further questioning about where they got the phone. One of them had a mobile, another had a SIM card, and the third made the threatening call.
The discovery of a mobile phone inside the jail raises concerns about security measures. In response to this incident, Head Warden Ajay Singh Rathore and Warden Manish Kumar Yadav have been suspended pending investigation. They will not be allowed back until their roles in allowing the phone into the jail are determined.
The prisoner who made the call was transferred to Jaipur Central Jail recently from another facility where he was awaiting trial. His name is reportedly Munna. A case has been filed at Lalkothi police station regarding this matter.
It is not uncommon for mobile phones to be found within Jaipur jail premises. Recently, one prisoner even swallowed his device before being discovered by guards. The jail department attempted to keep this incident under wraps but it became public when he required medical attention.
