Harsul jail organises first ever meet of inmates with family members under 'Gala Bhet' initiative

In a novel initiative, the authorities of the Harsul Central Jail today organised a meet of the inmates with their family members, specially the children under the age of 16, with a view to encourage familial bond. The meet, called 'Gala Bhet', was an innovative step of Director General of Prisons of Maharahstra Dr Bhushan Kumar Upadhayya, who has allowed the children under the age group of 16 to hug their parents who are serving jail terms under different charges in the various jails across the state.

Deputy Director General of Prisons Rajendra Dhamane was here to attend the first such function, which was held on the jail premises under the tight security. Mr Dhamne, addressing the 70 prisoners and their family members including children, said children can meet their inmate parents and can spend the whole day with them once in six months. He added that no one becomes a criminal on their own volition, the situation and circumstances compel them to become one. Therefore, the society should treat the prisoners released from jails after serving the punishment with respect and motivate them to lead a good life.UNI
