Islamabad: The Inspector General of Prison, Punjab has directed authorities to put security jails across Punjab on high alert.

He also directed jail authorities not to leave the prisons and be there all the time.

The IG Prison Mian Farooq Nazir has ordered Deputy Inspectors General of Prisons and Superintendents of Jails — including DIG Rawalpindi Region and superintendent of Jail Adiala Asad Javed Warraich to further improve the security of jails, reports Dawn News.

He further directed the superintendents, deputy superintendents and assistant superintendents of jails to remain present on the premises of jails.

Due to the law and order situation in the country — the IG Prison imposed a ban on leaving the station without prior approval of the competent authority.

“We have received through reliable sources that the superintendents, deputy superintendents, and assistant superintendents often leave the station in odd hours and left the jail at the mercy of subordinate staff,” the IGP said in a letter to all Regional Inspector General of Prisons and superintendents of jails.

To ensure the safety and surveillance of jail inmates, all the superintendents of jails have been directed to assign the security staff duty at important points instead of less important points.

The IGP further said that the jail officers and officials should perform their duties with dedication, honesty, discipline and to ensure security of the jail.

Negligence and slackness in the execution of administrative affairs will not be tolerated under any circumstances, said the IGP.
