New Delhi: With Tihar jail authorities agreeing to introduce a common room as well as for provision for a television by end-September 2020, the Delhi High court today disposed of a petition seeking facilities for high security ward prisoners, saying there was no further need for monitoring of the situation.

On the last date, the court had directed the Tihar Jail authorities to take instructions for providing facilities and provision of TV to the High Security ward prisoners in Tihar.

The petition was filed by Advocate Harpreet Singh Hora and Aekta Vats in the year 2018 and alleged that prisoners in High security ward and in general ward are being discriminated against.

The lawyers argued for the petitioner DSGMC stating that a letter was received from several prisoners of Tihar Jail in 2018 wherein the prisoners had raised grievances about discrimination between prisoners lodged in High Security ward and General ward of Tihar Jail.

The petitioners argued that the discrimination is against the rules laid down in Delhi Prison Manual and against the law laid down in judgment of Supreme Court in Sunil Batra case.
