Soon, Retired Army Personnel To Guard Tihar Jail Inmates


Retired army personnel will soon guard prisoners inside Delhi’s Tihar Jail.

Officials said former defence personnel will be appointed as warders, guards and assistant superintendents inside the prison complex.

Confirming the development, officials from the Home department said the government had given an in-principle approval to the jail’s proposal to induct 426 retired army personnel. Read more
