Mysuru: Alert prison personnel have seized ‘sedative’ tablets from a prisoner lodged in the Central Prison here recently.

Keshava 32, an undertrial lodged in the prison for over an year, had allegedly received ‘sedative’ tablets from a visitor who had called on him on Apr. 4.

Though the visit in the interview room lasted only for a few minutes, the visitor had stealthily passed a brown packet covered with a white tape.

The jail staff, who suspected something fishy, searched Keshava, only to find the tablets.

The jail authorities suspecting the tablets to be sedatives, lodged a complaint with the Mandi Police, who have sent the tablets to FSL, Bengaluru for testing.

The accused undertrial Keshava, who is facing a murder trial in Hassan, is lodged along with his three other accomplices in the jail.
