Punjab gov’t to build new district jail for prisoners

Rawalpindi—The Punjab government will build a new district jail with adequate space to accommodate nearly 3, 000 prisoners. The government has issued directives to the officials of Adiala Jail to search for a piece of land measuring 800 square meters.
According to sources, the Adiala Jail is over populated with at least 3, 000 prisoners detained inside the prison which is past the lodging space of the premises. Additionally the number of captives is increasing day by day.
Keeping in view the dreadful condition of the crowded cells, the prison officials put together recommendations and sent them to Punjab government seeking immediate assistance.—NNI
