Guwahati: A major security lapse occurred at Dibrugarh Central Jail in Assam, where separatist and leader of "Waris Punjab De," Amritpal Singh, along with nine aides, is currently locked up.

On Friday, jail authorities found a spy camera, a smartphone, a keypad phone, pen drives, Bluetooth headphones and speakers, a smartwatch, and various other items in the cell occupied by the separatist leader and his nine associates.

Taking to X, Assam top cop GP Singh said, "Reference NSA detenues at Dibrugarh Jail, Assam - On receipt of information about unauthorised activities taking place in NSA cell, additional CCTV cameras were installed in the public area of NSA Block.

"Inputs received confirmed unauthorised activities, based on which jail staff searched the premise of NSA Cell early this morning, leading to the recovery of a smartphone with SIM, a keypad phone, TV remote with keyboard, spy-cam pen, pen drives, Bluetooth headphones, and speakers and smart watch which were lawfully seized by the jail staff. The source of these unauthorised articles and the mode of induction is being ascertained. Further lawful action is being taken and steps being taken to prevent recurrence."

Amritpal Singh was transferred to Dibrugarh Central Jail on April 23, 2023, following his arrest by the Punjab Police from Moga district after an extensive manhunt spanning several weeks.

The radical Sikh preacher was indicted under the National Security Act (NSA), a strict legal provision. His nine associates are also facing charges under the NSA.
