Dimapur, June 11 (MExN): A library under ‘Project Paper Bridge’ was inaugurated by Limasunep, IPS, Commissioner of Police at District Jail, Dimapur. It was set up through the initiative of K.A.L. Group, Legal Practitioner & Consultancy firm in collaboration with Sarvahitey, a Delhi based NGO.
According to a press release, the Dimapur District Jail is the first library of its kind in the state and the third library under the project.
In his keynote address, Limasunep appreciated the initiative taken by the group of young lawyers in reaching out to the Jail inmates through ‘Project Paper Bridge’ and stated that reading values will help the inmates in their reformation and rehabilitation. Our society has failed its citizens especially the Under Trial Prisoners (UTPs) in one way or the other and setting up Library for them will benefit not only the jail inmates but society as a whole, he stressed.
