Bhopal: Saba Farooqui, one of the accused in RTI activist Shehla Masood murder case, was caught on Tuesday carrying a mobile phone in jail just after she returned from hearing at Special CBI court in Indore.

Saba and Zahida were frisked while appearing for the hearing in the Court where nothing was found. But when they returned to the Jail, Saba caught with mobile phone which she tried to throw in the seed-plot, but couldn’t escape from the eyes of the jail authorities.

Now, who provided Saba with the mobile phone, why she was carrying the SIM-less mobile phone inside the Jail, was she going to get a SIM card in Jail… are some of the questions haunting Jail authorities.

Jail authorities claim that Saba did not get mobile in Jail rather, she was supplied the phone in the court premises where she was produced for hearing.

As per the jail sources, during the hearing on Tuesday, many acquaintances and relatives of Saba and Zahida, the main accused in the case, were present. 

However, the mobile phone was without SIM card which raised another question if SIM were to be supplied in the Jail.

Earlier on Tuesday, a special CBI court here extended till April 11 the judicial custody of Zahida Pervez and three others in connection with the Shehla Masood murder case.
