Supreme Court takes note of poor facilities in jails

The Supreme Court took note of the lack of facilities in jails, leading to delayed trials and prolonged incarceration of under-trial prisoners, in the country. It also sought the assistance of the Attorney General in issuing directions to deal with the situation.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra yesterday, on its own, initiated the judicial proceedings after taking note of reports on deficiencies at the Faridabad jail in Haryana and expanded the scope of the case to the entire country.
The bench then asked Attorney General K K Venugopal to assist the court in the matter. The court appointed advocate Gaurav Aggarwal as amicus curiae, a friend of the court, and asked him to help the Attorney General deal with the case.
