Prisoners across Haryana jails, from whose possession, cellphones or SIM cards are recovered, will not be released on parole or furlough.
The Haryana Police has issued instructions in this regard to all the heads of jails, directing the jail staff not to approve any inmate's request of temporary release, if in the past, cellphones or SIM cards has been recovered from his /her possession. However, in case of exigencies like death or marriage of an immediate family member, the inmate could be entitled for a temporary release (a maximum of 48 hours) in police custody.
Inmates in Haryana have been found to rampantly use cellphones while lodged in jail. Raids conducted by the police have led to the recovery of dozens of mobile phones, SIM cards and cellphone chargers from the possession of the accused. To curb the menace, the prisons department had made repeated requests to the government to install cellphone jammers in jails. However, the government is yet to install such jammers, claiming the project is in its final stages.
Till end of August this year, the police had recovered over 60 cellphones, activated SIM cards and phone chargers from inmates. Jails in Hisar, Bhiwani, Rohtak, Panipat and Sonepat districts are famous for this menace.
In the last Assembly session, the House had amended the Haryana Good Conduct Prisoners (Temporary Release) Act-1988 by introducing a clause that, from now on, no hardcore prisoner will be released on temporary basis or on furlough.
