Jail warden held for providing mobiles to inmates
Gurgaon, May 5 (IANS) A warden posted at the district jail in Bhondsi near here was arrested Sunday for allegedly supplying mobile phones to the prisoners, police said.
Warden Pawan Kumar, who was deputed in Bhondsi jail, about eight kilometres from here, was taken into custody for allegedly supplying mobile phones to the inmates. The action was taken against Kumar following a complaint by deputy jailer Shahid Husain.
According to police, the accused was on night duty Saturday when he hid three mobile phones wrapped in a polythene in the water disposal pipe line of a washroom. Finding his activities suspicious, some personnel on duty informed senior jail officials. The hidden phones were later recovered from the gutter.

Police have registered a first information report (FIR).
Station House Officer of Bhondsi police station Arvind Dahiya said police were grilling the warden, while the inmates from whom mobile phones were recovered would be questioned after a production warrant was issued.
Bhondsi jail inmates have been accused of making extortion calls and controlling their gangs from inside the jail.
