In a latest incident, the authorities nabbed a pharmacist attached with the Health Department and posted inside the jail while trying to slip in two smart phones. He was identified as Rajesh Kumar, a resident of Nageena Avenue here.
The accused was handed over to the Gate Hakima police where a case under Section 420 of the IPC and Sections 42 and 52-A of the Prisoners Act has been registered against him following the complaint lodged by the jail authorities.
Jail officials stated to the police that as per routine, the accused entered the jail premises in the morning to discharge his duty. He had a stock register of medicine in his hands. When they were about to check the register, the accused showed reluctance. Later, the jail staff found two mobile phones stuffed inside the register by cutting papers from middle.
Surinder Singh, investigating officer, said although four-day police custody was sought for interrogation of the accused, the court denied the same and sent him in judicial remand. He said the accused claimed that he was framed under a conspiracy.
