    Dreaded criminal Sukha Kahlon, currently lodged in Punjab's Kapurthala jail, has put jail officials in the dock by uploading two videos on his Facebook fan page titled 'Sukha kahlon sharp shooter'.

    Kahlon is facing 40 criminal cases including murder, attempt to murder, dacoity, robbery, snatching and other offences in Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.

    A violent video clip of him brutally beating up a fellow prisoner named Jimmy (titled 'Jimmy alias Pita Kaand') inside the Kapurthala jail was uploaded on September 26. The victim is seen asking for mercy but is asked to abuse himself in Punjabi.

    Another video titled 'Rocky Kaand' uploaded on September 23 has been shot outside the jail. The victim is seen being beaten with sticks and thrashed.


    Sukha has three Facebook accounts and he regularly updates his fan page from the jail. He even updated his fan page on Tuesday by changing the profile photo around 5 pm. The fan page created in early 2013 has over 16,283 followers and is full of violent comments and photos glorifying gun culture.

    Sukha's Facebook page clearly tells the inside story of Punjab jails where the inmates are openly using mobile phones and drugs. The Punjab jail officials allegedly work hand in glove with the inmates and supply drugs, mobile phones and other prohibited items to them. Sources said Sukha was shifted to Nabha jail on Saturday.

    Jail authorities, however, refuted the claims.


    Sukha Kahlon uploaded a video clip of him beating up another inmate.
    "This undertrial has been shifted to Nabha jail now after he misbehaved with the jail officials. We are trying to find out how the videos were uploaded," R.K. Meena, ADGP Prisons said.

    Sukha is not the only net savvy prisoner. According to sources there are dozens of other criminals housed in Kapurthala, Patiala, Hoshiarpur and Ludhiana jails who frequently use social media and exchange information using GPRS. There were reports in July that Punjab prisoners are using social media.

    Sukha's Facebook fan page has echoed the allegations of Punjab's former director general of police (DGP Prisons ) Shashi Kant who had said the jail inmates would not be able to use drugs and mobile phones without the help of jail officials
