What is the solution to escape?
When the government was asked whether the release of prisoners would be considered? In reply, the government said that the provision for the release of convicted prisoners in prisons provides for the premature release of eligible prisoners under the Act and other sections, but the non-compliance with these rules for 14 years must be punished on behalf of convicted prisoners.
In addition, Article 161 of the Constitution provides for early release on the basis of mercy petitions filed by convicted prisoners or their families who have been sentenced to death in addition to the death penalty.
Prisoners are overcrowded
According to an order issued in July this year, the state’s prisons have arrangements for the early release of prisoners, subject to certain conditions.

According to a 2019 report by the National Crime Records Bureau, UP had the highest number of inmates at 21.2 per cent, with 1,01,297 inmates.
