Punjab prisons chief rejects Bibi Jagir Kaur's plea for TV in jail

Chandigarh, Thu, 05 Apr 2012 ANI

Chandigarh, Apr.5 (ANI): Punjab Director General of Police (Prisons) Shashi Kant has rejected a request from former state minister Bibi Jagir Kaur to install a television in her cell at the Kapurthala Jail.

Reacting to reports that Bibi Jagir Kaur was being accorded VIP treatment, Kant asked an Inspector General rank police officer to conduct a probe.

The officer is likely to visit the Kapurthala Jail today for this purpose.

Kant had also written a letter to Kapurthala Jail Superintendent S.P. Khanna, asking him to strictly follow the rules.

Kant said that Kaur had been first sent to Patiala jail but she sought to be transferred to Kapurthala jail as her native village Begowal was nearby.

"This request was granted as it fell within the rules," he said.

The former Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee chief has been convicted and sentenced to five years rigorous imprisonment for the abduction and forced abortion of her daughter Harpreet 12 years ago. She was, however, acquitted of murder charge against her. (ANI)
