The Telangana government has issued orders to release 14 non-life convicts from jails across the state in the view of 150th birthday celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi.
Director-General of Prisons, Sandeep Shandilya said that the convicts are being released as per guidelines of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
He said that these prisoners were scrutinized by a high-level committee. "Based on good conduct and certain norms they were selected for premature release," Shandilya added.
