Hi-security zones in Punjab jails to check gangsters
To keep an eye on notorious gangsters and ensure they are away from other prisoners, the Punjab prisons department has set up "special high security zones" in the major jails in the state.
"10 separate high security zones have been set up in the central jails in Punjab to house all the gangsters and hardened criminals," a senior official of Punjab Prisons department said here on Monday. To keep electronic surveillance on gangsters and hardcore criminals, the department has planned to install more CCTVs and jammers to block 4G network.
"We have proposed to install 32 CCTVs for each high security zone and one 4G jammer each for these zones," said the official adding that 500 walkie talkie sets will also be purchased.
