Following the Government order, issued under Sec. 268 of the Cr. PC, the 74 persons involved in terrorist and extremist activities cannot be moved out of the prison without the Government's permission.
This, it is hoped, would prevent the repeat of incidents in which Imam Ali and Hyder Ali, escaped recently. While Hyder Ali was later apprehended, Imam Ali is still at large.
The Government is also planning to introduce a Bill in the Assembly session to amend 167 (ii) (b) of the Cr. PC, which states that no magistrate shall authorise detention in any custody under this section unless the accused is produced before him. The Amendment would enable the extension of custody of under-trials through video conferencing.
The Government had already announced extension of such video conferencing to all central prisons in the State.
