Jails in Durgapur

On 20th November, 2013, Mr. Haider Aziz Safwi, the minister for correctional administration department, West Bengal, has suggested to build an open jail in Durgapur, which would be the second in the state. This will be done mainly to distribute the inmates of the other jails of the state, which are all too cramped up. Also, this is being done with the intension to give the jail inmates certain degree of privilege where they would be able to move about and interact with the outside world freely.
