‘Not possible to curb use of mobiles in jail`
Jodhpur: A top Rajasthan police official today said it was not possible to put an end to use of mobile phones in prisons, but efforts were on to rope in service providers to curb their use by inmates.
Reviewing the security arrangement in Jodhpur Central Jail here, Director General (Jail) Omendra Bhardwaj said curbing use of mobile phones in prisons remained a daunting task for officials and "it is difficult to completely do away with the practice".
"It is difficult to declare that a jail is completely free of mobile phone use by criminals. Searches will continue on and off and mobile phones will continue to be recovered in the process," Bhardwaj said.
"However, we are seriously considering roping in service providers to equip us with the technical know-how to limit the use of mobile phones in jails," he added.
On modernisation of prisons, the official said talks were on to redesign jails in the state.
