CEN­TRAL TELE­GRAPH ACT TO BE AMENDED: DGP SHASHI KANT

HT Ludhiana Live - - Front Page -

The DGP (prison) said many cases have been re­ported when mo­bile phones from jail in­mates have been con­fis­cated from in­mates.

How­ever, the agony is that there is no pro­vi­sion in the Cen­tral Tele­graph Act to book an in­mate for keep­ing a mo­bile phone.

“We have sent ten­ta­tive amend­ments to the Cen­tre. The Cen­tre has raised some queries in the amend­ments and we are work­ing on it,” he said.

He said the depart­ment had also ap­plied to the sec­re­tary, se­cu­ri­ties, to in­stall mo­bile jam­mers in jails.

“We have got the per­mis­sion to in­stall mo­bile jam­mers at max­i­mum-se­cu­rity jail, Nabha and San­grur,” he added.
