Arunachal to have its first jail on Tuesday

Posted by Ramesh Khati on November 2, 2009

Itanagar, Nov 1 (PTI): The first-ever jail in Arunachal Pradesh will be inaugurated on Tuesday, ending the practice of keeping undertrials and convicts in police lock-ups in the state and prisons in Assam.

Around 30 undertrial prisoners in judicial custody, now in lock-ups of various police stations here, will be shifted to the central jail.

Developed as a reform centre under the new approach to treat the prisoners, the Rs 3 crore jail infrastructure has been lying unused after completion since 2005.

Former Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil had come to inaugurate it in 2005 but cancelled the programme due to the demise of the then Pope.

Since then the inaugurations were skipped on several occasions.
