Uttarakhand adds ‘jail experience’ for 500 Rs per night as latest tourism gimmick

If you are have become bored of mountains and lakes Uttarakhand has a unique offer for you if you're willing to step out of your comfort zone. Haldwani jail is offering tourists a real "jail experience" at just Rs 500 per night. The jail administration is transforming the abandoned portion of the jail for “tourist inmates” who are looking to spend a night in the prison cell.


Satish Sukhija, the prison's deputy jail superintendent told the publication that the jail frequently received "orders" from senior officials to allow "recommended persons" to spend a few hours in the jail barracks.

Many of these people were reportedly advised by their astrologers to spend a stipulated time in jail to get rid of ‘Bandhan Yog', under which the planetary position in one’s horoscope predicts imprisonment in the upcoming future. The revamped facility, however, will be available for all those who just want to get a feel of the environment in jail.
