LAHORE - Punjab Minister for Prisons, Ch. Abdul Ghafoor, in yet another, incident became rash on the staff of Camp Jail only to satisfy family members of two drug traffickers jailed in a case under Section 9-C CNSA (20 Kg charas) and in another case of 9-C PS ANF (35 Kg charas). The Minister used filthy language against the jail staff and shouted on them, a document available with TheNation revealed on Friday. The Minister had visited the jail on the complaint of mother and sister of two under trial notorious drug dealers on September 5, where he roughed up jail staff allegedly for taking bribe from relatives of prisoners. The jail sources confirmed that Arslan and Usman, two under trial prisoners are detained there for the last over four years, and their family members had approached the Minister levelling allegations of bribery against jail staff. According to jail sources, family members of the prisoners had complained to the Minister that Rana Latif Assistant Superintendent Jail and Sohail Ashraf, Court Munshi were involved in receiving bribes and torturing the prisoners severely. The Minister allegedly rushed to the jail and burst on the junior jail staff after suspending Rana Latif, Assistant Superintendent and Munshi Suhail. He also became rash with Munshi and tried to beat the Munshi physically by snatching stick from the Superintendent jail, but he saved his skin by slipping away from the office, a jail official seeking anonymity said. The IG Prisons conducted an inquiry into the matter, but jail officials were found innocent and allegations could not be proved against them. Consequently, IG Prisons restored the suspended officials but they were transferred again on the instructions of an official of Chief Minister Secretariat due to reasons, best known to him. The jail officials, maintained that alleged drug traffickers had been punished 21 times in the jail for breaching jail discipline and a case of carrying narcotics in the jail had also been registered against them with the local police station, documents of which are available with this scribe. It is worth mentioning here that said Minister had also created a scene at the Lahore Airport a couple of months back when he had been there to receive his guests. He allegedly fell out with Customs officials in the gaze of a large number of people. Ghafoor was stopped by Chief Minister Punjab, Mian Shahbaz Sharif from performing his duties as Minister for a couple of weeks. Later, he misbehaved with some lady MPAs belonging to the PML-Q in the Punjab Assembly and Speaker suspended his Assembly membership for seven days. Talking to The Nation on Friday , he said that mother of prisoners was a heart patient and she had sought his intervention into the matter. He denied having roughed up jail staffers during his visit to Camp Jail, Lahore, saying that he had only admonished some jail officials on the complaint of mother of a prisoner. The Minister said that mother and sister of the prisoners cried before him and complained that they had paid illegal gratification to the jail staff by selling their gold ornaments. The minister said, 'I could not see their miserable condition and immediately rushed to the jail alongwith them. He denied being rash to any jail officials and said that he was jail custodian and he would not let any jail staffer to accept bribe or torture any prisoner. 'I am running jail affairs on the instructions of Chief Minister Punjab who is willing to make them corruption free, and if next time any mother of any prisoner visited my office with the same charges I will visit the jails again, he added.
