UP government on Tuesday formed a three member committee to strengthen the existing system of prisons across the state.
According to Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar, “Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has constituted a three-member committee to strengthen the existing system of prisons and to reform the prisons. The committee is expected to submit its report to the government within two months.”
Former UP DGP Sulkhan Singh and former Additional DG (prisons) Hari Shankar will head the committee and the member secretary of the committee will be Additional Inspector General (prisons) Sharad, he said.
The decision comes a day after Munna bajrangi, a gangster was allegedly shot dead by Sunil Rathi inside the UP’s Baghpat jail.
