“Delhi Jails are overcrowded by 80% without considering the norms of social distancing. Delhi Jails have capacity to retain 10026 prisoners and at present about 14000 prisoners are lodged in Delhi Jails excluding about 4000 prisoners, who are at present released on interim bail/emergency parole. It is, therefore, clear that social distancing cannot be maintained in Delhi Jails due to overcrowding and in case 4000 prisoners surrender then situation may worsen in Tihar Jails and the same would be detrimental and adversely affect prisoners and jail administration as well,”

-the plea said.

The plea further stated that the situation in Delhi Jails is not such that one room/barrack can be provided to each infected prisoner because number of prisoners are lodged together in single barrack/room.
