IGP: Keraniganj central jail at security risk
The Inspector General of Prison Brig Gen Syed Iftekhar Uddin said: “The absence of boundary wall is disrupting the security of central jail. Due to whatever reasons, the boundary wall is incomplete – which should have been the first thing to be built.” He made the observation while talking with reporters after visiting the Keraniganj central jail yesterday. The prison security chief said: “Notorious criminals would not keep in the central jail and. It is safe to keep them at Kashimpur jail.” “The newly built central jail is an isolated establishment no boundary wall around the central jail which is established just beside the highway scythe and the security force is also limited here.” Now it is mandatory to build a boundary wall around the jail premises soon, specially in the East side wall, to ensure security and we are also giving recommendation for it number of times to Public Works Department (PWD), the IG prison said. In response, the PWD inform jail authority that a tender was already issued for constructing the boundary. Local’s agitation against the construction is problem for this as they want road in the east side. Brig Gen Syed Iftekhar pulled up the Public Works Department for sloth progress of several development establishments – canteen, meeting cells and others – inside the jail premises. “I think that it is because of lack of sincerity from their behalf,” he said. Talking on prisoners monitoring, the IGP said:  “We have only 700 jail security staffs for 7,000 prisoners and two first class officials but the central jail require 20 more first class officials here. However, the new jail is not all about problems and the prisons’ chief highlighted that there have been several improvements including remarkable progress on solving the problems of prisoners.
