Mafia don Abu Salem again attacked in jail

Mumbai, June 27 (IANS) Mafia don Abu Salem was attacked in a Maharashtra jail Thursday, official sources said but did not give any details. This was the second time in four years that he was targeted inside jail.

Abu Salem was attacked by an inmate in the Taloja Central jail in neighbouring Raigad district, said officials but were tight-lipped about the nature and seriousness of the injury and what kind of medical aid he was given.

This is the second attack on Abu Salem since he was deported from Portugal in 2005.

In 2010, Salem was attacked by some inmates in the jail with a steel spoon following which he was shifted to TCJ as a security measure.
