4 prisoners gang up to kill their rival in Bhondsi jail
Gurugram: Notorious for stirring up controversies, there is now a fresh trouble for jail officials in Gurugram's Bhondsi jail. It has been reported that four prisoners ganged up to kill their rival after a fight erupted between them on Monday night. The four members who have been identified as Sachin, Jiyalal, Lakshman and Jitender attacked Manvender in Barrack 15 with blades and sharp objects.
Having sustained injuries on his face and chest, Manvender has been admitted to Civil Hospital where he is presently receiving treatment. On July 31, an inmate was injured after he was assaulted by three other inmates with a sharp object on the jail premises.
This is the third incident this year when prison officials have sustained physical injuries because of the violence inside the jail premises.
On August 27, Anil who is undergoing a murder trial was attacked by three prisoners who had a personal enmity with him. On July 12, two jail inmates had landed in the jail hospital after five of them fought with broken plates on the jail premises. Senior officials in Gurugram Police suspect that not only are these gangs carrying out their illegal activities inside Bhondsi jail but there are also sinister plans by certain criminals to eliminate members from other gangs. The dangers of these activities came to light when incidents of these gangsters using cell phones to extract extortion from the jail were reported. This is not for the first time when sinister criminal plots have been hatched
inside the jail.
In 2017, the law enforcement officials had arrested three sharpshooters of Ashok Rathee gang for firing gunshots at the cashier of a bakery. This was done in order to intimidate the owner for paying the ransom of Rs 50 lakh.
Coincidentally, Rathee was also accused of hiring sharpshooters within the prison who then murdered his wife by shooting her dead in Sohna road in 2016. There were also reports that dreaded gangsters Binder Gurjar and Manjeet Mahal demanded extortion of Rs10 lakh and an Audi car from another prisoner Manish Bharadwaj who has been held up under Arms Act.
