Central Jail Bilaspur on Tuesday witnessed a rare emotional moment when a prisoner witnessed that his six-year-old daughter was taken to a school from jail by none other than District Collector himself.
The rare initiative and a fine human gesture of the district collector Dr Sanjay Alang have won hearts of thousands of people in Bilaspur, the second most populous town of the state.
As per reports, Khushi lost her mother when she was just 15-days-old. As her father was a jail inmate, she was staying with him. She was then shifted to women prisoners’ cell where she was studying in the play school inside the jail.
Reports say that during inspection of the Central Jail, Alang found the six-year-old with women jail inmates. During interaction, she expressed desire to go to outside the jail for studying in a good school.
Honouring her wishes, Collector himself took her in his car to drop her at the school. ‘Khushi’ was happy as she is now free to cherish her dream.
At the initiative of the Collector, Jain International School has enrolled her in the school and provided her a hostel room as well. She will have a special caretaker as well. Meanwhile, the school management has also decided to bear the cost of her education and hostel expenses.
