“The stigma attached to prison returnees sometimes creates a great readiness for the continuation of crimes, through which they are made to return to the prisons.

It only aggravates and increases the number of people addicted to illegal behaviour as a way of life,” he said.

The PRO said they also needed a generator and medicines for the infirmary since they had qualified nurses among the officials to take care of the prisoners’ health needs.
