Justice Goel & Lalit's Visit Set To Improve Condition In Faridabad Jail, Observation Home

Justice Goel & Lalit

The bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud of the Supreme Court today directed immediate measures to improve the condition in Faridabad Jail and Observation Home.

Invited by the Haryana Legal Services Authority to a function earlier this year, Justices U U Lalit and Adarsh Kumar Goal had on their own also visited the jail and Observation Home and found the situation was pathetic.

It was found that the sanitary condition, quality of food and medical and health care was poor.

They then directed the District Judge Faridabad to conduct a survey and prepare a report along with recommendations to improve the condition.

On the receipt of the recommendations  the bench headed by Chief Justice sought the assistance of Attorney General K K Venugopal to implement them.

Advocate Gaurav Agrawal and R P Luthra have been asked to assist the AG in this regard.
