Day-long siege by rioting inmates ends in Pak jail
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.
The inmates revolted on Saturday at the Larkana jail of Sindh province in protest against the move to shift about 200 prisoners to some other jails, said Larkana Central Jail Superintendent Abdul Ghaffar Dhar.
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.
