The Dimapur commissioner of police Limasunep on June 11 inaugurated a library for the jail inmates at Dimapur District Jail in Nagaland under ‘Project Paper Bridge’ initiative by KAL Group, Legal Practitioner and Consultancy firm in collaboration with Sarvahitey, a Delhi based NGO.
While lauding the initiative of the group of young lawyers, Limasunep said that reading values would help the inmates in reformation and rehabilitation.
