Pregnant and lactating women should be provided with special diet as per the National Prison Manual.

As a strong argument, the police said 39 deliveries had taken place in Delhi prisons in the last 10 years

What about childbirth?

The child born to pregnant woman in jail shall be registered at the local birth registration office. The fact that the child has been born in prison shall not be recorded as the place of birth to face social stigma.

Is #SafooraZargar the only pregnant women in Jail?
NO. There are approx 4 lac persons in jail in India, of which, approx 18K are women and of these 18k women, many would be pregnant too.

Where was the cry for Humanitarian ground for all of these?

The question remains the same why is she an exception and despite of she being so inhumane, why is she granted bail on Humanitarian grounds?
She was not the first women who was pregnant in Jail, there are several with less offensive crimes but why was she released
