A protest by the prisoners of Rara Central Jail in Muzaffarabad turned into a clash between the police and the prisoners on Saturday, reports Samaa News.

The clash started when some prisoners turned violent and started a fight with the security personnel.

The prisoners were protesting against the unavailability of facilities for the past few days. However, no casualty has been reported so far.


The police summoned additional forces to keep the situation under control and started searching for the prisoners who initially started the fight.

Last year, a clash was also reported in Adiala jail, Rawalpindi. The clash was between two groups that led to the transfer of 23 convicted and under-trial prisoners to other jails and the suspension of 11 jail officials, including two superintendents.
