Death of under trial prisoners is serious issue in this largest democracy in the world which is not only violation of human rights but also of constitutional rights.
07 March 2016
With due respect your applicant wants to draw the kind attention of the Hon’ble Sir to the following submissions as follows.
1-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that yesterday i.e. On 06/03/2016 an under trial prisoner committed suicide in the district jail Mirzapur as told by superintendent of jail Mr. O.P. Katiyar. Hon’ble Sir may be pleased to take a glance of attached documents. Here this question arises that when an individual till the allegations are proved presumed to be innocent , what is the cause of such inhuman treatment compelled the prisoner to commit suicide. Whether such incidences are not raising the questions on security arrangements in our jails.
2-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that this is not only failure Jail administration and executives but also judiciary in the state as if they can’t provide security and facilities have no right to send an under trial in jail.
3-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that mismanagement in the district jail Mirzapur is quite common, concerned are not taking any measure to improve the deplorable condition . Jail inmates are facing inhuman treatment and insecurity. I think that it may be reform centre but mismanagement and insecurity inside the premises converted it into torture centre.
This is humble request of your applicant to you Hon’ble Sir that It can never be justified to overlook the rights of citizenry by delivering services in arbitrary manner by floating all set up norms. This is sheer mismanagement which is encouraging wrongdoers to reap benefit of loopholes in system and depriving poor citizens from right to justice. Therefore it is need of hour to take concrete steps in order to curb grown anarchy in the system. For this your applicant shall ever pray you Hon’ble Sir.
