Muzafarnagar: Mobiles stealthily entered the district jail premises here and began circulating among wannabe runaway criminals. More than 9 mobile handsets were doing the rounds and criminals gleefully began strategising their escape plan. All this was possible due to friendly advances extended by jail officials who facilitated their support system to these criminals.
Police, after it was tipped off about the mobile phones with the prison inmates, swung into action and seized the handsets from a number of criminals lodged in the jail.
Jailer A. K. Singh and Deputy Jailer Jitendra Kashyap of the district jail have been suspended for dereliction of duty following seizure of mobile phones from the jail premises.
