A 'celebration' on Mahashivratri night at the Central jail in Goa turned chaotic with a fight breaking out between inmates and two of them overdosing on 'bhang' and landing in hospital.
Babu Arolkar and Vinay Gadekar, inmates of the Central Jail at Colvale, were admitted to Goa Medical College and Hospital late last night, a senior jail official said.
While jail officials didn't come out with any formal statement, a source said that inmates, who were high on bhang (a preparation of cannabis) that had been smuggled into the prison, had a scuffle among themselves.
Sub-inspector Rohan Madgaonkar of Mapusa police said that the Jail Superintendent has lodged a complaint under section 358 (assault) of the IPC, and further probe is on.
