The 11 terror suspects who were remanded in judicial custody are lodged at the high security block in Parappana Agrahara Central Prison.

“The suspects were brought to the prison at 7 pm. They are at the high security block where all the terror suspects stay. The block has ten rooms; eight can accommodate three people and the other two can accommodate five. The five accused in the Bangalore serial blast case are also lodged in the same block. Usually, terror suspects are kept in the same block,” a prison official said.

“Some of the accused in the murder case of Bangalore Rural ZP member B M L Krishnappa are also kept in the same building. As they had threat from other inmates, they were kept in this block. As of now, number of terror suspects in the prison has increased, we will shift them to other barracks,” the official added.

“The high security block will be guarded by two prison staff in two shifts-morning and night. A jailer will be in charge of the block. The rooms in which the terror suspects are kept will always be locked and will be opened only when they are provided food. They are not allowed to come out of their rooms unlike other inmates,” the official said.
