Prison left without cell phone jammer
Coimbatore prison: During the past 3 years, the jail department had posted three suggestions to their Tamil Nadu authorities to install a cell phone jamming device at the principal jail building here. The suggestion now lies at the dusty shelf and hard-core prisoners proceeding to use mobile phones in prison.
Even the high security surveillance cam which was seriously damaged by the well-known Al Umma angry prisoners in the 2000 is waiting for being substituted. Therefore jail officials cannot observe the moving of all Al Umma prisoners directly inside their high safety prison block. The personal protecting that block are threatened by those prisoners and feel strange doing periodic necessary checks on them. In addition, DIG Govindarajan had got intimidating mail after he took away two cell phones in the high safety block in the 1999.
