Ambala, Oct 22 (UNI) Taking serious notice of the tunnel found in a barrack of murder convicts and spies in the Central jail here, the Ambala Superintendent of Police today ordered an inquiry to be conducted by the DSP Headquarters.
The SP claimed that he had come to know of the incident through media reports this morning and conceded that it was a ''serious matter and required to be investigated to uncover who was responsible for the misadventure and the security lapse.'' Baldevnagar SHO Suraj Bhan today visited the Central jail to take stock of the incident spot.
It is learnt that he was not allowed access by the jail authorities to investigate the cell where the tunnel was reported to have been dug up.
However, when the Ambala Police Range IG K K Sindhu was asked to comment on the incident, he dodged the issue saying that ''khel aur jail ek saath nahin chalte,'' (sports and jail are separate issues).
He was interacting with media on the occasion of inauguration of Police gymnastic championship competitions at War Heroes Memorial Stadium Ambala Cantonment.
