Islamabad, July 17 (IANS) At least 70 prisoners in a Pakistani jail have surrendered, a day after they went on a rampage to block their shifting to other prisons, Geo News reported Sunday.

They smashed the locks of three barracks and shattered the jail’s main door, he added.
Prison officials, with help from police and Pakistan Rangers, crushed the revolt, leading to the surrender by some 70 prisoners.
