Leena Dhankhar,Gurgaon: As number of top gangsters from the NCR and neighbouring states lodged in the
Bhondsi Jail in Gurgaon grows, the prison authorities are trying hard to ensure that these criminals do not get to operate their illegal activities from their confinement.
“We have cracked down on the use of mobile phones, and jammers have been installed to check their illegal activities,” said superintendent of the jail Harinder Singh.
Besides, hardcore criminals and petty criminals are kept in two separate wings so that the former cannot influence the latter.
“We have segregated the criminals so that undertrials are not influenced by gangsters”, Singh added.
The jail, which was established 13 years back as a modern hi-tech prison over some 90 acres of land, is located on the outskirts of Gurgaon on Sohna road. It’s considered the best among 19 jails in Haryana.
Presently it houses around 2,200 inmates against its capacity to host 2,416 prisoners. About 650 of these prisoners are from Uttar Pradesh, 200 from Rajasthan and nearly 250 from Delhi. Around 900 are from Haryana. Many are sent from Mewat region as well.
Of them, there are around 100 big and small-time gangsters from Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
Jail authorities marked eight from Haryana, six from Delhi, four from Rajasthan and two from Uttar Pradesh as “notorious gangsters”.
The prominent gangsters who are currently lodged in Bhondsi jail include Dhirpal, Surender, Vikash, Manjit Mahal and Rakesh Bawania from Delhi, Sarwar and Anupam from Uttar Pradesh and Sandeep, Surender, Binder, Karor, Ashok Rathi, Badli, Kartar, Baljeet alias Jeeta, Sunil Manjit, Ravinder Dahiya and krishan from Haryana.
