Hit by violence, jails to get modern weapons

Following a number of violent incidents and deaths in jails in the recent past, the state has, for the first time, equipped jail guards with tear-gas shells and rubber bullets to control the violent mob. Besides, the department will soon receive the delivery of automatic 340 INSAS rifles and 71 pistols (9 mm) to replace the World War-II vintage .303 rifles.
Besides, Jails Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa has proposed recruiting tall and well-built youths, especially those who do regular gym and look like bouncers, for controlling gangsters and mob violence in jails as happened in Ludhiana Central Jail recently.
