Ambala, Nov 20 (UNI) All arrangements have been completed to transfer the condemned prisoner Sanjiv Kumar and Pak spy Saleem, involved in the abortive tunnel digging case in the Central jail here, to Hisar Central jail.

IG Jails R.C. Howel today said that the two were being considered a danger to the jail administration after the tunnel was found dug inside the barrack in which they were lodged.

Sanjiv's co-accused wife Sonia, who is also facing the death penalty for killing her father MLA Relu Ram Punia and other members of the family, would remain in the jail here, he said.

Their mercy plea is pending with the President of India and a response was expected soon.

Sanjiv was likely to be shifted late tonight along with Saleem, jail sources said.
