Tension prevailed for nearly four hours at Salem Central Jail today after three inmates threatened to commit suicide after climbing a tree in protest against searches in their cell last night.

Prakash of Chennai, Stephenraj of Hosur and Senthil of Salem have been in jail on theft charges. Jail officials carried out a search in the cell on suspicion that they were in possession of ganja, though nothing was found.

Protesting against the search, the trio climbed a tree in front on the jail premises threatened to commit suicide by jumping, police said.
