On Monday, central jail number-10 staff noticed that some object had been thrown inside the jail. The suspicious objects were tightly packed in two juice packets. When the packet were opened, 10 mobile phones, four data cables and 75 grams tobacco were recovered, a senior official said.

Further probe revealed that the packets were thrown from outside the jail, they said.

The matter has been reported to the police for further investigation, they added.
