Jail authorities isolate sensitive inmates, step up internal security

NAGPUR: The internal security at Nagpur Central jail has been stepped up with some sensitive inmates being put under special surveillance as the day of execution for 1993 Bombay bomb blasts convict Yakub Memon draws near. The jail officials, fearing a mass revolt or some other forms of protest, have also increased security within the jail manifold by summoning manpower from other units to Nagpur. The city police’s quick response team (QRT), which has commandos with sophisticated weapons, has already been deputed inside the jail and in the barracks where the sensitive inmates are lodged. The numbers of jail guards, deployed per barracks, have been increased. It is learnt that closed circuit television (CCTV) too has been installed at strategic locations on a war-footing.
This is being monitored by senior officials. Additional lights have been installed along the jail periphery too. Sources said that several inmates, especially the ones held for taking part in the Naxal revolution, are being kept away from each other to ensure that they cannot communicate and put up a united protest. The Naxal inmates had threatened to start a hunger-strike and other form of protests against the execution order of Yakub. Some other inmates too were planning to join the protest.
Though the jail officials have kept mum on the issue, a press note issued by sympathizers of the Naxal inmates confirmed that a protest movement is building up inside the jail. Security has been stepped up outside too with access being allowed to only identity card holders. City police were cautious while giving clearance to citizens and lawyers wanting to meet inmates. Meanwhile, an Indian Air force chopper has been hovering above Nagpur Central Jail and sensitive areas in the vicinity. Although defence authorities and the city police have been denying their involvement in the security surveillance, the choppers have been spotted since two days now.
