Remand Court in Central Jail

Punjab & Haryana High Court has directed the Judicial Authorities, Jalandhar to hold Remand Courts, thrice a week, for Judicial Custody Accused, with in the jail premises instead of bringing them to local courts for hearing their bail applications. Necessary amendments in the CRPC- Section 167 have been made. This move will prevent the increasing number of escapes by under trials from Court premises. Initially, the new arrangement would be implemented in Jalandhar till 31/05/08. If the results are positive, then the arrangement would be extended to other districts of Punjab and later, in Haryana also.
