Kashmiri and Pakistani Prisoners Under Threat in Indian Jails; Security To Be Upgraded



In order to assure reliable security to all Pakistani prisoners, the Rajasthan government has taken action against the jail authorities and improved the security around Pakistani inmates. Recently, a Pakistani prisoner was killed by fellow inmates in the Jaipur Central Jail.

Islamabad Concerned as Pakistani Prisoner Killed in India After Pulwama Attacks

Currently, there are 16 Pakistani prisoners, five each in Jaipur and Bikaner, two in Jodhpur, three in Sriganganagar and one in Kota Jail.

NRK Reddy, Director General, Jail, said: “Pakistani prisoners remain in separate barracks and security arrangements have been enhanced further.” The Pakistani prisoner Shakrullah was killed in the TV room of the jail after a brawl with other inmates over the choice of channel. Under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, Shakrullah was lodged in the Jaipur Central Jail since 2011. Shakrulla was serving life imprisonment after he was convicted in 2017.

Jaipur police have also taken another significant step by removing Jaipur Jail Superintendent Sanjay Yadav and deputy jailor Jagdish Sharma and appointing Rakesh Mohan Sharma as the jail superintendent. “Warder of ward 10 Ramswaroop and head warder Bhaiyanath Sharma were suspended. The action was taken on Wednesday night after the incident”, said IG-Jail Rupinder Sharma.

Under Sections 302 (murder) and 34 of the IPCA case has been filed with Lalkothi police station against four jail inmates Ajit, Manoj, Kulvendra and Bhajan Meena. Till now, there has been no response from the Pakistan High Commission for claiming the body of Shakrullah, which has been kept at SMS Hospital after post-mortem.

Rajiva Swaroop, Additional Chief Secretary, Home, said: “I have received no communication from the high commission so far. We will wait for instructions from the government for the disposal of the body if there is no response from the high commission.”
