- Out of 2300 inmates lodged in Udaipur division’s jails, about 200 were searched.
- Up to 80% of the prisoners have already gained weight by 30 kg
- The reason for this is not to work hard and exercise other than regular eating of the fixed calories found in the jail
Rajsamand (Narpatnath Chauhan / Udayagopal). Capture food! Perhaps the convict-inmates are getting a lot of attention. That is only a few months after reaching the jail, the weight of the prisoners increased from 20 to 30 kg. This shocking truth came to light when Bhaskar scrutinized the figures of prisoners held in jails. On the other hand, not only the victims’ families, but also the families of these prisoners are getting painfully low.
If the victims are forced to visit the court-police, then the families of these prisoners are also suffering from their crime. Out of 2300 prisoners lodged in the prisons of Udaipur division, figures of about 200 were scrutinized, it was revealed that up to 80% weight has already increased to 30 kg. In addition to regular eating of the fixed calories found in prison, there is a big reason for not working and exercising.
During the investigation, it was revealed that there is a provision for honorarium to the convicted criminals of rigorous imprisonment in lieu of manual labor but they have not been forced to work for the last few years. The undertrials also do not work in jail. Excessive capacity does not even provide for the system of exercise. Habitual drug addicts do not get enough food outside, but such prisoners are getting heartened by getting enough calories on arrival in jail.

21 thousand prisoners in state jails at this time
The prisoners are given food according to the prison diet. Due to the small prison, the prisoners can neither move nor do manual labor. In such a situation, weight gain can occur -Jaswant Singh, Jailer Rajsamand
Due to lack of space in the jails, the physical work of the prisoners is not possible, this may be the reason for their weight gain. Rajsamand is imprisoned more than three times in prison. -Narendrakumar, ADJ, Secretary District Legal Services Authority
