The prisoner, an inmate of Jail No. 4 inside Tihar, had swallowed the tiny Chinese-made mobile phone. Doctors had to get it vomited out of his body.
The recovery could be just a tip of the gadget smuggling iceberg inside the Tihar Jail.
The recoveries have been made in a crack-down launched by the Tihar authorities on communication gadgets smuggled into the jail. Newly appointed Director General of Delhi Prisons, Sandeep Goyal has emphasised that dismantling the syndicate of gangs that supply mobile phones to jail inmates is his priority.
Earlier on August 16, a highly sophisticated, sleek cellphone was found in the jail's Vipashyana (meditation) ward, which at present houses some high-profile prisoners.
