SANGRUR:HOURS af­ter a video, shot by seven in­mates of the dis­trict jail on the premises, ac­cus­ing the jail su­per­in­ten­dent of de­mand­ing ₹1 lakh bribe for not im­pli­cat­ing them in false cases went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia on Satur­day, SSP San­deep Garg has or­dered a probe into the claims.

Five un­der­tri­als and two con­victs are seen in the video. This also raises ques­tions on how did they man­age to smug­gle a mo­bile in­side the jail, even as the au­thor­i­ties claim the pris­ons are heav­ily guarded. “I have told the SP (head­quar­ters) to probe these al­le­ga­tions and also the use of mo­biles in­side jails,” SSP Garg said. Tak­ing note of the video, AIG (jails) Man­jit Singh Kalra in­spected the jail and met the in­mates seen in the video.

The in­mates are Gur­preet Singh of Dhanaula; Man­deep of Bu­gran; Gur­pa­yar of Ugra­han; Makhan of Kheri Jat­tan; Gur­winder of To­gawal; Gurbeant from Cha­har and Ran­jit Singh, of Kourian.
