Prisoners protest IPL TV ban


KOLKATA: Hundreds of inmates at a prison in Kolkata have gone on hunger strike after they were not allowed to watch Indian Premier League cricket matches, officials said yesterday.

B.D. Sharma, the inspector general of West Bengal prisons, said the protest began after guards rejected prisoners’ demands to be able to watch the matches taking place in South Africa that are being broadcast on a private channel.
