The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to free 72 prisoners in the state on the occasion of the 72nd Independence Day.

"These prisoners are who are poor (nirdhan) and helpless (asahay), and are serving extra term since they are not able to deposit the fine.
 

They may be released after getting the remaining of the fine with the help of social organisations, self-help groups, clubs and trusts etc," an official spokesperson said in a statement issued last evening.
