As per the rules prescribed by the Karnataka prisons department, no jail inmate can be allowed to work outside the jail premises. But this was something strange they were let free to work in open.

On questioning Superitendent  V Krishnamurthy  on phone,  he answered with rage  saying that it was a cleaning campaign organised on behalf of  “Swacch Bharath”. 

It was to the surprise to see them  working freely just with only person to guard, was the question?
