Ahmedabad: During Friday’s raid on the premises of Sabarmati Central Jail by the Detection of Crime Branch (DCB), two mobiles were found abandoned in the Bada Chakkar area. The search was conducted by an ACP, eight inspectors, 31 sub-inspectors and over 230 other police personnel.
The cops of Special Operations Group (SOG), women’s wing, and city police’s Zone-1 joined the sleuths of DCB in a three-hour-long search of the entire premises.
