Why some of the objectionable items were removed from the cell of Evans?


The Governor was under apprehension that Evans can create and do any kind of unauthorised activity in his cell. So the senior police officer asked Stephens to take away his razor and nail-scissors after he had finished his shaving as Evans could cut his throat from the razor. They had doubt that Evans could use the nail-scissors and razor against McLeery who was on invigilance duty in the cell.
