One day hunger strike at Central Jail

NAGPUR: Around 31 men and seven women, all allegedly connected to the Naxal movement and other such outfits, observed a daylong hunger strike on Thursday in the Nagpur Central Jail. They were demanding status of political prisoners on the 83rd death anniversary of revolutionary Jatin Das.

In British India, Das had died during a hunger strike seeking the status of political prisoner for himself and other compatriots in the jail. It is learnt that the prisoners refused to take their breakfast and rest of the meals during their daylong hunger strike.
