INDEFINITE STRIKE LAUNCHED FOR OPENING OF KANTABANJI SUB-JAIL
Tuesday, 24 March 2015 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Residents of Kantabanji under the banner of the Right to Fight organisation on Monday sat on an indefinite dharna in front of the district Collectorate here demanding opening of the sub-jail in Kantabanji, the construction of which is completed since 2010. “We had demanded immediate opening of the jail earlier in December, 2014. The Titilagarh sub-Collector had assured that the sub-jail will be opened within two months. However, nothing is done yet,” said Ashis Khaitan of the Right to Fight.
Sources said, the sub-Jail at Kantabanji jail has been constructed by the Odisha Police Housing and Welfare Corporation and its construction has been completed. However, shortage of water is a major bottleneck for its opening. Additional estimate for creation of water facility in the jail has been sent to higher authority for approval, sources added.
