KARACHI: Provincial Minister for Prisons and Anti-corruption Manzoor Hussain Wasan on Thursday directed jail officials to impose ban on carrying mobile phones within jurisdiction of the prisons due to security threat to jails across Sindh province.
In a statement, Wasan said that the security officials should be deployed in a systematic manner around the prisons in order to avoid any intrusion of criminal elements. He said that the provincial government had acquired latest weaponry for prisons, which would improve the ability of the security personnel and ensure effective security of prisons.
