LAHORE (Dunya News) - Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz has called for a comprehensive plan on jail reforms in the province.  

The chief minister chaired a special session attended by key provincial officials, including Senior Provincial Minister Marriyyum Aurangzeb and Provincial Information Minister Azma Bukhari, MPA Sania Ashiq, Chief Secretary Zahid Akhtar Zaman, Home Secretary Noorul Ameen Mengal, and IG jail Farooq Nazeer. 

Among the key decisions made during the session, final approval was granted for the construction of women's jails in Faisalabad and Rawalpindi. 

CM Maryam instructed the development of new jails outside urban areas, aiming to alleviate overcrowding and enhance security measures.

Another notable development was the approval of the judicial lockup and prison revamp project. 

Concerns regarding criminals maintaining contacts outside the jail prompted directives to fortify foolproof cyber security measures.
