Muharram, Independence Day holidays of Punjab jails staff cancelled
The jail authorities in Punjab have been directed to ensure arrangements for Muharram processions inside the jail and for this, a reserve force of 20 personnel should be formed for security measures.
The IG Jails said that Muharram processions and gatherings should be held under the supervision of superintendents and deputy superintendents.
It is interesting to note that jail authorities also directed the jail staff to request philanthropists for sweets distribution among the inmates due to lack of funds.
