RAWALPINDI (Web Desk) – A clean up operation was launched at Adiala Jail on Wednesday during which prison authorities recovered 4G devices, mobile phones and other prohibited items from prisoners.

“The operation was launched by the jail administration with the help of security agencies after complaints that prisoners were using telephones to threaten and extort people on the outside,” the prison department said.

The jail authorities with the help of security agencies verified that the threatening calls were made from the jail and then it was decided to launch the operation.
