HC seeks report on condition of inmates in Karnataka central prisons
| Thursday | 20th June, 2019
The court said the report should have the specific issues pointed out by the apex court such as steps taken to provide facilities to women inmates with children, providing adequate washrooms, quality of food, visitation facility and whether the Mental Health Act has been implemented.
The court also asked the state to act on the report submitted by Karnataka State Human Rights Commission (KSHRC).
KSHRC had submitted a report to the state after visiting prisons.
The report had indicated the lack of sufficient doctors, insufficient beds in hospitals and overcrowding, among other human rights violations.
The court adjourned the hearing to July 4.
