New Delhi: Prisoners at Tihar jail can now delight their taste buds as tasty food has been added to its menu this new year. Few of the dishes that have made its way in the fresh menu are pav bhaji, bedhami puri and malai chaap.
The jail administration had been receiving complaints regarding the quality of food. Taking which into consideration, food menu was revamped with the inclusion of new and tasty dishes.
Jailmates are reportedly satisfied with the fresh food and the quality of food.
Further, to curb incidents of violence in jails and to guarantee safety of the inmates, the Delhi Cabinet last year approved a Rs 120-crore proposal of installing CCTV cameras in Tihar, Mandoli and Rohini jails. The move was also aimed at ensuring that no VIP treatment is meted out to inmates on the premises.
According to the government, the project will ensure safety and security of inmates since there have been incidents of violence which have even resulted in serious repercussions, including murders.
“This proposal of the Home Department will be executed by the PWD and will include supply, installation, testing and commissioning of CCTV surveillance system, including comprehensive maintenance at Tihar, Rohini and Mandoli Prison complexes,” the government said in a statement.
