Presidency jail warden show-caused

The warden of Presidency Correctional Home has been sent a showcause notice after he was frisked and found to be allegedly carrying Rs 10,000 for someone inside the prison Saturday.

The accused, Ramkrishna Jana, has been sent a "showcause notice because he couldn't provide any satisfactory explanation as to why he was carrying the money, and for whom," a senior jail official said. He added that there are several high-profile prisoners lodged in Presidency and smuggling of money, such as in this case, sent out a wrong message as far as goings-on inside the prison was concerned.

"It will not be difficult for anyone to conclude that recovery of mobile phones, narcotic substances and even razors from the prisoners' possession are because a section of jail officials are hand in glove with them," he said.
