Srinagar: Deputy Commissioner Srinagar Sahid Iqbal Choudhary on Friday said that he was personally inquiring into the incident involving massive clashes by jail inmates amid damage to a building and at least three barracks at Srinagar’s central jail.

“I’m personally inquiring. I’m here (central jail Srinagar) since last 9 p.m,” he said. He said that there was “massive damage done by the inmates.”


At least two inmates were reportedly injured amid massive clashes by inmates at the jail following which the authorities have imposed restrictions in old city parts here and reduced internet speed in entire Srinagar, Anantnag and Kulgam districts.
