The Punjab Prisons inspector general on Tuesday took action against the alleged misuse of authority by a jail superintendent and suspended him after he brought his family to visit the barracks.

Jail Superintendent Zeeshan was suspended for having three of his relatives over for a jail tour, which was not officially sanctioned. 

The line in-charge had lodged a complaint against allowing strangers and irrelevant persons into prisons and an investigation was ordered into the matter.

The investigation apparently found the superintendent guilty, who squeezed in three of his relatives in the official delegation to tour prisons. The prisons IG took action and suspended him.
