Bhopal, July 11, 2015 (Ataullah Faizan): Home and Jail Minister Mr. Babulal Gaur has said that a separate room for prisoners will be constructed in every district hospital in the state. Mr. Gaur was reviewing arrangements and construction works in jails at his residence here today. DG Jail Mr. B.K. Singh, MD Police Housing Corporation Mr. Sanjay Rana and ADG Jail Mr. Sushobhan Bannerjee were also present. Mr. Gaur said that the district hospitals where there is no jail ward, separate police squads have to be deployed in separate wards where prisoners are admitted for treatment. If a separate prisoner ward is available in hospital, one security squad of police can guard them all at one place. Due to it, police will not have to deploy additional forces and security arrangements will also be strengthened. He also reviewed progress of construction of new buildings of jails.
