Bengaluru: Barely few days after a constable was caught smuggling smartphones into the Bengaluru central prison to be handed over to Nazir, an accused in the 2008 serial blasts, the crime branch (CCB) officials have stated that mobile phones are easily accessible to the jail inmates, contrary to what the prison officials claim of a check on use of phones.

The CCB which claims to have sufficient information on the number of phones, SIM cards and the inmates using the same within the Parappana Agrahara jail states that such a porous jail helps them to detect and avert crimes by tapping the mobile phones.

The investigation into the phone sneaking case on October 11 was handed over to the CCB on Friday.

With regard to this incident, one of the officials on a lighter note opined that had the phone reached him they would have known whom he was contacting and if it was as part of some terror hatching conspiracy or just a mean to contact family members.

Though the jails are raided frequently to curb the use of mobile phones, drugs etc prisoners here are quick to hide these as soon as they get the slightest hint of a raid, says a police officer.
