Staff Correspondent

MYSORE: About 459 inmates, including 42 women, launched an indefinite fast at the Mysore Central Prison here on Tuesday, to protest against the delay in releasing prisoners who have served more than eight years of their sentence, considering their good conduct. According to prison sources, the prisoners did not eat lunch and dinner. Senior prison officials are reportedly making efforts to persuade the prisoners to eat and end their “agitation”.
