On Thursday, at least 10 inmates of a jail in Punjab's Ludhiana city sustained injuries when a clash broke out between two groups, the police said. Security has been heightened in the Central Jail after the clash, a police officer told IANS, adding the cause of provocation is yet to be ascertained.

The incident in the jail occurred in less than a week after Mohinder Pal Bittu, the prime suspect in a case relating to the desecration of Guru Granth Sahib in Bargari in 2015, was beaten to death in the high-security prison in Nabha, near Patiala, by a murder convict and a murder accused on June 22.

In a similar incident which took place on June 18, 2019, four prisoners who are behind bars at Gurugram district jail, allegedly attacked a fellow inmate inside the barrack of the jail, thereby causing serious injury to him, an official said. The police said that the incident was reported when Chandrapal, booked under theft cases, got involved in an argument with another inmate, Niraj, in barrack number 2B.

Niraj and his three other associates in the same barrack, Pawan, Hariom and Jorawar, attacked Chandrapal, thereby leaving him with serious injuries.

SHO of Bhondsi police station Surender Kumar said the four brutally assaulted Chandrapal. He has received severe injuries in head, abdomen, and chest, he said, adding that he was admitted to a hospital for some time, but was shifted back to the jail later. Read the full story here.
