      > This being the biggest national hospital, convicts from various prisons are brought in for treatment and medication . In their prison uniform and caps, though very few still have the caps, handcuffed and accompanied with their warders, they go to the revenue offices to collect their invoices because the government pays their bills. This also applies to those students studying in public colleges.
