Recently, a lawyer from Ambal filed a complaint with the Haryana Police that Arvinder Singh, accused of drug trafficking, had threatened to kill him. Apart from seizing Arvinder’s mobile phone, the jail authorities claimed to have seized five other mobile phones.

Arvinder, a resident of Tarn Taran, has been in jail for the last one year under the NDPS Act. He hired a lawyer to secure bail from the superior court. After the lawyer failed to get bail twice, Arvinder threatened to kill him if he did not get him out of jail.

Not only Arvinder but even his brother flaunted his gangster connections to eliminate me, the lawyer alleged in his complaint to the Ambala police. Later, the Haryana Police alerted the Faridkot jail authorities, which led to a search of the accused.

In nine months, more than 200 mobile phones were seized from Faridkot Jail. Rajiv Arora, Superintendent of Central Jail, Faridkot, said that despite tight security, they are facing the problem of checking the influx of mobile phones in the premises.
