Islamabad: At least 70 prisoners in a Pakistani jail have surrendered, a day after they went on a rampage to block their shifting to other prisons, Geo News reported on Sunday.

They smashed the locks of three barracks and shattered the jail`s main door, he added.
Prison officials, with help from police and Pakistan Rangers, crushed the revolt, leading to the surrender by some 70 prisoners.
