New Delhi, Sep 25 Over 800 inmates at the Rohini district prison in the national capital city underwent health check-up during a day-long drive here on Sunday.


The drive was organised to check the health status of the inmates apart from medical consultations being provided to them by the jail administration.

According to organisers of the health drive, Saroj Super Specialty Hospital, major tests were conducted and reports were compiled to conclude hypertension and blood pressure fluctuations.

The hospital said that most of the inmates required dermatologist and orthopaedics attention.

"As these people are not living a normal life and are away from their family, friends and some have been here for years or even a decade, everyone is not strong enough to stand loneliness and tough routine as that of a jail. These things affect one's metabolism and therefore such health irregularities are expected to happen," said Dhiraj Malik, a senior doctor with Saroj Super Specialty Hospital.

Rakesh Sharma, Superintendent of Delhi Prisons, appreciated the efforts by the hospital and said: "The data for all the inmates will be compiled and medication as prescribed by the doctors will be carried out for each inmate as per their requirements."
