Jail manual will be amended: Home minister

 Home Minister G Parameshwara said the jail manual will be amended shortly.
Speaking to media persons after visiting Mangaluru jail that had witnessed a double murder of inmates by a rival gang on November 2, he said on Sunday that the present jail manual did not allow the police to enter the prison.

This has been hampering the security inside the jail. “The present jail manual is old. It is a challenge to check untoward incidents inside the jail by controlling the inmates.”

After the twin murder, the need for strengthening the security in the prison has been initiated.

 The prison department officials have been asked to review the security inside all the prisons in the State. Measures should be taken to ensure that mobile phones, weapons and other drugs do not reach the inmates, he said.
