Governor urges prisoners’ welfare


Governor Punjab Muhammad Balighur Rehman has said that the prisons should focus on the reformation of the prisoners during detention at the correction centers so that they leave as good human beings.

He expressed these views to Inspector General (IG) Prisons Punjab Mubashir Ahmed Khan, who called on the Punjab Governor on Saturday. IG Prisons briefed the Governor on measures taken by the department for the welfare of prisoners and the facilities provided to them in jails.

Balighur Rehman said that prisoners deserve basic human rights as per the law and instructed IG prisons to pay special attention to reforms. He further tasked IG prisons to implement a comprehensive mechanism to address the grievances of prisoners’ relatives and the facilities given to them as per the law.

Mubashir Ahmed Khan informed the Governor that separate jails were being constructed for female prisoners in Lahore, Faisalabad and Rawalpindi, which would be staffed by women.

The IG added that he had made his WhatsApp number public, so that prisoners’ relatives could contact him directly for the swift redressal of their complaints. IG Prisons invited the governor to visit jails.
