In an order passed recently, the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court made some pertinent observations regarding the need to implement a scheme for conjugal visits in prisons.

A Division Bench of Justices S Vimala and T Krishnavalli urged the Government to take up the issue, while disposing of a Habeas Corpus Petition.

A lady had approached the High Court praying that her husband, a life convict, be granted leave for 30 days to assist her in infertility treatment to be undergone by her.

The Prison authorities had declined to grant leave on grounds that the personal life of the detenue will be put to danger. This, it was argued, was evident from the report of the Probation Officer. Neither the Probation Officer, nor the Police Inspector had recommended the leave. On an examination of the facts at hand, the Court found no logical basis for these apprehensions.
