Ranchi, Aug 20 :  A total of 50 inmates of the Birsa Munda Central Jail here today sat on a hunger strike in a show of solidarity to civil right activist Anna Hazare.


Jail Superintendent Dilip Kumar Pradhan said about 150 inmates had approached to sit on a hunger strike, but only 50 were allowed due to delay in their approach and lunch was already prepared.

“They have been allotted a separate ward to stage their hunger strike,” he added.

Asked whether their request was indefinite, Pradhan said they were given permission only for a day.

To a query, he said the jail authority had no role in motivating them, but it did object to their decision as it was for a “good cause”. PTI
