The prisoners declined the hunger protest after finding no response from the officials

Around 8–10, convicts were awaiting fair trial in four separate blocks of the high-security jail in the Ajmer area. After that, they went on a hunger strike on November 23. Thus, the energy supply to the highest jail, which keeps 65 “extremely dangerous” criminals, was switched off by the senior officials.

The prisoners were locked in a small space with no light or air. Thus, a protest broke out in the jail after 16 hours.

The prisoners sent their complaints to the higher officials of the high-security jail. Many prisoners made phone calls and sent messages to their lawyers as well. Additionally, the situation was conveyed to the jail’s general administrator. However, there was no response to their pleas. Thus, the jail administration had already made up its mind about no electricity in the winter. Therefore, the convicts’ hunger strike ended after the fifth day due to no response.

The high-security jail in Ajmer can accommodate 264 prisoners and more. The high-security jail in Ajmer was constructed in 2015. Thus, prisoners from several Rajasthani areas, including those who have been convicted and those who are awaiting trial, are inmates here.

In November 2019, higher officials of the prison decided to cut off the prison’s electricity supply.
