Hyderabad: Visitors who want to meet prisoners shall have to produce their Aadhar Card in the future. Department of Prisons of Telangana State has imposed this condition in order to find out the whereabouts of the visitors who come to meet the prisoners in jail.
Mr. A. Narasimha IG of Prisons told that Prisons Department wants to ensure the identity of the visitors who come to jail. It may be possible that terrorists and anti-social elements could try to meet the prisoners in order to continue their criminal activities. For this purpose they might produce false identification. If they produce Aadhar Card they cannot cheat the officials. In addition to this, the details of the prisoners’ visitors could also be known. It could also be detected about the persons coming from various states whether they are involved in any criminal activities or do they have any criminal background. Mr. Narasimha expected that this system could be introduced in the next two months. It will be experimented first in Central Jails and later it would be extended to district jails also.
