Shift Hardik to another prison: Surat jail officials to Court
Authorities of Lajpore jail want their high-profile inmate Hardik Patel, the Patel quota agitation leader, to be shifted to another prison because of his “uncivilised behaviour” and recovery of mobile phones and other items from his possession that they said posed “threat” to security of the facility here.
Lajpore jail officials on Tuesday submitted an affidavit before a court in this regard. Jailer Paresh Patel said he filed the affidavit before the court of Principal Session Judge Geeta Gopi on behalf of Jail Superintendent RM Pande. Pande told the court that Hardik be transferred to another jail as he posed “threat” to the prison’s security, following the recovery of a slew of items, including a phone outside his barrack, and a mobile charger and a battery from his possession a few days ago.
