New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday inaugurated the semi-open prison complex and beauty culture centre at Tihar Jail in New Delhi.

"The objective behind starting the semi-open prison is to mould the thinking of a prisoner towards positive activity by reposing trust in him so that he may re-socialize in the society after his release," Dikshit said.

Convicts with good conduct are sent to semi-open prisons.
