Patna: Shopping for a mobile phone? Beur Central Jail in Patna might be the spot to stop at. Jail officials said Saturday that 700 mobile phones with no claimants, recovered from near the jail premises, would be auctioned on December 8.

"The state prison department has given a go-ahead to the Beur jail to auction 700 mobile telephones recovered from near the premises in the past year," jail superintendent Shivendra Priyadarshi said.

The auction of the 'benami' mobile telephones will be held on December 8 in the presence of a magistrate-rank official near the jail, Priyadarshi told IANS.

"There were no claimants for the phones, and since they were recovered in and around a government building, they become property of the government," he said.
