LAHORE: Punjab Home Department has decided to engage qualified students in paid internship programme for jails across Punjab. Students of psychology, criminology and law will be given paid internship in 44 jails across Punjab. During the internship programme, special sessions will be arranged with the inmates to make them a healthy part of the society. The special programme will provide free legal aid to women, children and the elderly and will pave the way to reduce their punishment. These views were expressed by Punjab Home Secretary Noor ul Amin Mengal during a meeting with IG Prisons Mian Farooq Nazir in his office on Saturday.
