Mhow (MP): A jail guard was arrested for allegedly selling drugs to prisoners at Mhow sub jail. Jail sentry Arvind Tatwal was reportedly caught while handing over drugs to a prisoner on Wednesday, Jailor Manoj Jaiswal said.

After seizing around five grams of brown sugar from Tatwal, the Mhow Police have registered a case against him under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act and also arrested him.

Arvind was earlier transferred to Ratlam after it was complained by the people that he allegedly demanded money in order to allow them to meet their jailed relatives, Jaiswal said.

He was transferred to Mhow Jail recently and was supposed to appear for the jailor's exam on May 23.
