Ahmedabad, Nov 12 (UNI) The Vishwa Hindu Parishad today alleged that Hindu prisoners faced threat from ''jehadi elements'' incarcerated in Gujarat jails and demanded adequate security for the former.

Referring to yesterday's attack on a Hindu prisoner, Kamlesh Rathod, by two fellow Muslim inmates, Ahmed Miyana (30) and Yusuf Momani (28), at the Sabarmati Central Jail here, VHP state general secretary Jaideep Patel, in a statement here, alleged that lives of the Hindu prisoners are in danger.
