Puducherry, Feb 11 : The Federation for People’s Rights here today urged the administation to take immediate steps to bring to an end the fast by the prisoners.
In a statement here today, Federation Secretary G Sugumaran said the prisoners of the Central Prison were on a fast for the last three days and some of them were admitted to the Government General Hospital as their condition had deteriorated.
He questioned the administration that when the Tamil Nadu Government was taking steps to release the life convicts who had served seven years imprisonment, why was the Puducherry administration denying parole to the prisoners even after submitting all relevant papers.
He also urged the administration to constitute a committee of human rights activists to visit the prison to assess the situation.
