§ 57. Mr. SCURR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he can give any information as to the state of health of the two State prisoners, Purnananda Das Gupta and Nailini Ranjan Roy, both confined in Fategarh Central Gaol, United Provinces; and whether he is aware that repeated appeals have been made to the gaol superintendent for provision of physical exercises and fresh air for these prisoners in the open spaces of the gaol compound, and that these appeals have been refused because of the lack of consent on the part of the Government of Bengal?
§ Earl WINTERTON
I have seen a message from a correspondent at Furrukabad to the Calcutta "Forward" of 3rd April last, which contained the allegations detailed in the second part of the question. I have no other information on the matter, nor as to the state of health of the two persons in question, but am making inquiries.
