KOZHIKODE. The killers of rebel Marxist leader T.P. Chandrasekharan serving life still enjoy a luxurious life in prison, a wee hour swoop revealed.
Acting on reports of ‘privileged’ inmates enjoying bribing guards on duty, DGP (Prisons) Rishiraj Singh himself led the raids on Kannur Central Jail. Started around 4 am, they unearthed embarrassing luxuries including ganja, mobiles, SIM cards and radio.
Northern Range IG Ashok Yadav and Kannur SP Pratheesh Kumar accompanied Mr Singh.
At Viyyur, Thrissur city police commissioner Yatish Chandra led the operation. They seized two smartphones from Mohammed Shafi, undergoing life imprisonment for killing T.P. Chandrasekharan.
