Use of mobile phones, drugs trade galore in Gurugram Jail
Gurugram, Feb. 9 (Delhi Crown): Two undertrials lodged in Gurugram’s Bhondsi Jail have been found involved in drugs trade inside the jail. While one allegedly caught carrying drugs while returning from the civil hospital after consulting a doctor, the other had called his friend from the jail to hand over the drug to the former.
The one who attempted to deliver the drug inside the jail is undergoing trial in a rape and murder case in 2017, said the police.
Bhondsi Jail’s Superintendent Harinder Singh said the inmate was brought back to jail on Tuesday afternoon and a packet of sulfa (also called sulfonamide) drugs was recovered from his pockets during a routine check performed before he entered the premises.
“We strictly check all inmates, who return from court hearings and hospitals, as in many cases, drugs are found in their clothes,” he was quoted as saying.
Police said during investigation, it was found that another inmate lodged inside the jail had called one of his friends and asked him to deliver a packet of drugs to the undertrial in civil hospital on Tuesday.
Both have been booked under relevant sections of the IPC.
