TOBA TEK SINGH, Feb 22: Human Rights Commission of Pakistan district core group coordinator Tariq Mahmood has expressed his concern over inordinate delay in functioning of a new district jail here.

In a press statement on Thursday, he said the jail had been completed for 1,000 inmates about six months ago after a delay of four years, but prisoners of Toba Tek Singh district were still being sent to Jhang jail. As a result of which their relatives were facing a great a deal of inconvenience, he said.

Mr Mehmood said: “It is strange that the jail has not been made functional despite the fact that jail staff has already been posted and they are being paid salaries.
