A woman who attempted to smuggle contrabands into Maafushi Prison was caught Wednesday night.
The woman had a conjugal visit scheduled with her husband, who is serving time in Maafushi Prison.
She had attempted to smuggle two Nokia phones, five mobile SIM cards, five SD memory cards, two chargers, some wireless earphones and two sticks of super-glue, concealed in her dress.
While the police did not reveal the identity of the woman, it confirmed that the woman is also in police custody now.
Maldives Correction Services said that when contrabands are smuggled into prisons, it hinders the rehabilitation efforts of some prisoners and advised the public not to engage in such activities.
