Mangaluru, July 19,2017 : The district jail in Mangaluru which remains often in the news for the clashes among prisoners, is this time in news for a different reason. Several pictures of under trials enjoying non-vegetarian food sourced from outside and even enjoying taking snaps have made their way into social sites creating quite a buzz. In fact the photos have been uploaded by the under trials themselves, once again revealing the discrepancies inside the prison.
Ganja, sim cards and mobiles making inroads into the prison despite a ban is nothing new. There have been reports even in the past of under trials making merry by getting sumptous meals from outside. However, this is the first time that a photo of the same has made its way into social sites revealing that even a jammer inside the prison is serving no purpose.
In the photo one can observe a curtain covering the doorway so that those outside do not get a glimpse of what is going on inside.
Following a decision taken at a high level meeting a few years ago, bringing food from outside excluding fruits was banned. Jail officials are now answerable to this latest development.
