MAPUSA:  A jail guard and two other prisoners of the Colvale Jail were hospitalised after allegedly consuming bhang.

According to sources, the jail guard namely Kiran Naik complained of vomiting after consuming the bhang and was immediately taken to the District Hospital at Mapusa. Later, the two prisoners namely Vinay Gadekar and Suryesh (Babu) Arolkar too vomited and were first taken to the District Hospital and later referred to Goa Medical College and Hospital at Bambolim.

Sources suspect that some jail staff may have taken the bhang inside the jail as all visitors undergo a thorough check by the police at the entrance. However, the police and jail staff are not being checked before entering the premises.

Sources said that one of the prisoners undergoing treatment in the GMC stated that someone had offered him the ‘drink’. 

However, Satyawan Tari, the jailor attached to the Colvale Central Jail has filed complaint with the Mapusa police against the inmate lodged in Cell No 3 one Anil Bhuye for allegedly offering the “drink” to inmates Vinay and Suryesh and jail guard Kiran.

Mapusa police have booked Anil Bhuye under Section 328 of the IPC. PSI K T Gawas is further investigating the case.

Vinay and Kiran Naik were later discharged from the hospital while Suryesh is at present undergoing treatment.

Later the jail superintendent attached the bucket full of bhang.

Sources said Bhuye used to serve food to the inmates of Colvale Jail.
