The Supreme Court today expressed grave concern over prisoners enjoying special facilities in jails, making a specific reference to Tihar Jail.
Referring to newspaper reports regarding certain inmates enjoying special facilities in jails, Justice Madan B Lokur said,
“What is going on? A parallel system is running in jails? Are there special rights in jails?“
Referring to a newspaper report pertaining to Tihar jail, Lokur J demanded,
“What is going on in Tihar? People are enjoying TVs, Sofas. What is the government’s answer? Will you say you are the Centre and it is a State issue?“
“I am with Your Lordships. This has to be tackled“, he said.
The matter has now been posted for Monday next week, when Centre is expected to respond.
