When the heart pines for panneer butter masala

BANGALORE: A group of North Indian prisoners, most of them undertrials lodged in the central jail in Bangalore, have approached the High Court and demanded that they be served North Indian food, reports The Hindu. They claimed that South Indian meals had made them weak.

The six petitioners, two each from Delhi, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, claimed the food was prepared in unhygienic conditions. They said they could not order meals from the canteen as it had been closed since July last year, and wanted the jail authorities to either permit them to receive North Indian food or allow them to cook their food.

There are nearly 50 North Indians in the central jail in Bangalore.
