Mobile found in Hazaribagh jail, maoist plan foiled

Hazaribagh (Jharkhand), Dec 18 (PTI) Police today claimed to have busted a Maoist plan to cause disturbances during polling at Palamu and Chatra assembly seats with the recovery of a cell phone and charger from the high-security Hazaribagh Central Jail, where over 100 Naxalites were lodged.

The devices were recovered from a cell during a search following a tip-off that top Maoists, lodged in the jail, were conspiring with their counterparts in Palamau and Chatra to create disturbances during today's polling and to trap the security personnel, Superintendent of Police Pankaj Kamboj said.

Deputy Commissioner Vinay Kumar Choubey said investigations were on how the devices reached the hands of the Maoists despite strict security.

Choubey said he has already lodged a complaint with the Inspector General, Prisons about the 'security lapse' inside the jail and the IG, Prisons assured him about necessary action.
