Bhubaneswar: Commissionerate of Police on Thursday carried out a raid on Jharpada Special Jail and recovered a small quantity of incriminating articles.

DCP Anup Sahoo led the raid which was aimed at intensifying vigil in and around the prison which is prone to illegal activities. Few days back the Commissionerate of Police conducted a similar raid on Choudwar Circle Jail.

"The raids on jail is a part of pre-poll security preparedness. Though we recovered few tobacco products and an used SIM, the action will spread a message that the police is on high alert during the elections," Police Commissioner Satyajit Mohanty said.
