Thiruvananthapuram: A judge fulfilled a prisoner's request for a song of his favourite actor.
The district sessions judge ‘dedicated’ the song Kannum Kannum Thammil Thammil from the Jayan-starrer Angadi for the prisoner at the Poojappura central jail.
This song was played on Freedom Symphony, the radio station at the prison, on Saturday evening. But the prisoner, who had requested for the song, was not at the jail then. He had been let out a month ago after serving his sentence.
The prisoner, a native of Channankara in Thiruvananthapuram, had been jailed for a year after he was convicted in an Abkari case.
'Freedom Symphony' had started functioning three months ago and the prisoners can give written requests to play their favourite film songs. The note should be submitted at the jail store. But the prisoner put the song request in the box which was set up to submit complaints with the district judge.
The complaint box is taken to the court on the seventh of every month. By the time the box reached the court, the prisoner had been released from the jail.
The judge handed over the prisoner’s note to the superintendent, along with a directive to consider his request for the song.
