Some under trials brought to the notice of the District Judge and the DC that they were facing health problems due to the consumption of water supplied in the prison. Responding to the grievance, the DC immediately instructed the officials to send the water sample for lab test and submit a report to him. He also directed that the quality of water supplied to the prisoners be checked once in a month henceforth.

The DC who also noticed that water pipelines were ruptured resulting in leakage at places in the prison, summoned the Engineer of the Water Supply Division of the MCC  and instructed him to get the ruptured pipelines repaired.
