Jail officials arrange dance troupe to humour prisoner !

k61l4kf7At the request of inmate Sarwan Singh, who is incarcerated in a Tarn Taran jail, for the murder of Youth Congress leader Sukhraj Singh Bhagupur in 2013, a 45-minute dance performance by a troupe of girls was hired from Fatehgarh for Rs.16,000 to entertain the convict on Baisakhi, exposing yet another incident of under trials and convicts having a fun time in Punjab prisons.

The jail superintendent submitted a report to the Punjab Police Prisons Chief saying the deputy jail superintendent Davinder Singh Randhawa was guilty of ‘entertaining the inmates’ without the permission of the authorities.

An inquiry into the incident has been ordered by the Punjab government, as the opposition Congress lashed out at the government for the lawlessness in Punjab’s jails, where it is alleged drugs flow freely and weapons are made available for gangsters many of whom have Akali Dal connections, proving in short the existence of complete lawlessness in Punjab.
