what has happened so far
Earlier in Punjab, prisoners were not allowed to have physical contact with any visitor. Anyone who came to meet could stand at a certain distance and talk. During this, there was also a glass wall between them. Gurjit Singh said that now the government is allowing married couples to have private meetings in jail, which we should take advantage of.
Regarding this new facility, Punjab’s Special Director General Harpreet Sidhu told the BBC, “There is no point in punishing the spouses who are not in jail. All we want is that the return of these prisoners to the society should be ensured. This is the reason why it has been decided to allow us to meet in solitude in the jails of Punjab.” He said that this is the first pilot project of its kind in the country and at present this facility is available in 17 out of 25 jails of the state.
Harpreet Sidhu said that such facility is in jails of many countries and we also realized that there are many such orders of the courts which support such a move. “The union of couples or the sexual relationship between them is a necessity,” he said. The concerned officials informed about the applications availing this facility. You will be surprised to know that in the first week alone, 385 applications were received from prisoners for permission to meet their spouse.
There is such a system in many countries
The Punjab government in its noting has cited the dictionary to explain the meaning of conjugal and said that married couples can have sex during their visit in jail. According to the Punjab government, such meetings are allowed in many countries. These include many countries including America, Philippines, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Australia, Brazil, France.
