(IN) Court directs acid attack convict to read works of Gandhi, eat vegetarian food
- KARAIKAL: Karaikal additional sessions judge N Vaithiyanathan on
Tuesday directed a youth sentenced to life term for murdering a
software engineer to read the works of Mahatma Gandhi and Arutprakasa
Vallalar during his tenure in the prison. In addition, the judge
directed him to practise yoga and meditation.
The judge made the observation while pointing out a recent research
finding that revealed yoga could improve mood and mental well-being
among the prisoners and affect the impulse behaviour. He directed the
jail authorities to provide vegetarian food for R Suresh alias Appu
who threw acid on J Vinodhini in November last year. She succumbed to
the burn injuries on February 12 after undergoing treatments at
various hospitals in Puducherry and Chennai.
