Uttar Pradesh minister for jails Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiya on Saturday suspended jail superintendent and deputy jailer of a prison as food in the jail was found to be below the specified standards.

Singh also inspected two other jails here.

In a surprise visit of "nari bandigrah" here, Singh found the food being provided to the inmates below the specified norms and standards, sources said.

The minister also took a serious note of complaints that the inmates were not being provided things of their daily requirement in the prison, sources said.

The Kunda MLA ordered suspension of jail superintendent Amita Dubey and deputy jailor Anjani Kumar Gupta.

The minister found anomalies in the construction and sanitation works in the other jails also, and directed officials to ensure that the inmates are provided with proper facilities.
