Amma puts other convicts to inconvenience

Ever since former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha was lodged in Bangalore Central Prisons at Parappana Agrahara, after she was convicted and sentenced to a four-year jail term on Saturday, relatives and friends of other jail birds have been put to hardship.

As the police have tightened the security in and around the prison since Jayalalitha and her three aides were jailed, it has become difficult for the relatives of other inmates to meet them.

The entry inside the prison has been highly restricted and hence the prisons authorities are not letting anybody go inside. Moreover, they have prohibited the family members and friends from meeting the convicts, sources said.

Additional forces have been deployed between Hosa Road junction and Central Prison, Parappana Agrahara. A lot of policemen have also been deployed on the Sarjapura-Rayasandra- Parappana Agrahara route.

Relatives of a few convicts, lodged at the jail, told Deccan Herald that they are finding it impossible to meet the inmates. They have not even been able to carry food inside.

The prisons authorities have totally banned those wanting to meet the inmates since September 27. However, a few of them were permitted to meet the inmates after much persuasion, they said.
