Minister bribes his way in Camp Jail


Punjab Minister for Jails Chaudhary Abdul Waheed Arain posing as an ordinary citizen on Friday made his maiden surprise visit to the Camp Jail and took serious note of security lapses. The minster also suspended four officials on corruption charges.
The minister bribed his way into the jail without disclosing his identity, visited main hall for registration of visitors and closely monitored the working of jailers deployed on duty at various points in and around the prison.
The entire staff got panicked when they came to know that the minister went on the jail premises and taking stock of the situation.
He expressed his displeasure over poor security arrangements and stressed an urgent need for fully strengthening security.
Later, he directed Prisons Chief Mian Farooq Nazeer and Lahore DIG Malik Mubashar to take strict disciplinary action against jailers found guilty of misconduct and make efforts to control corruption.
It may be mentioned here that Camp Jail was declared one of the best by a district and sessions judge in the entire province in terms of discipline, best quality food and security.
