According to unverified reports, Sajid Mir, a major player in the horrifying 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, was poisoned while imprisoned in Pakistan. The incident, which took place in Dera Ghazi Khan’s Central Jail, raised concerns about the security of well-known prisoners in Pakistan.
There are still unanswered questions regarding the purported poisoning. According to reports, Mir was airlifted to the CMH Institute of Medical Sciences in Bahawalpur after being found poisoned. It’s still unknown what specifically caused his illness and why he might have been poisoned.
It was just a few months ago when Mir was moved to the Dera Ghazi Khan jail. He had been imprisoned at Lahore Central Jail since 2022, after being convicted in a terror-financing case. He had been given a 15-year prison sentence by a Pakistani anti-terrorism court.
The suspected poisoning of Mir has raised questions about the security procedures in place in Pakistani jails, particularly for high-profile convicts facing terrorism charges. The incident emphasizes the necessity of extensive inquiries and tightened security measures to ensure the protection of every prisoner.
