In a remarkable turning of events, 12 prisoners facing life in prison or on the death row at Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Peshawar Central Jail shocked people by clearing their matriculation examinations. Also, 60 additional prisoners that were found guilty of horrific crimes successfully completed their ninth and 10th grade tests with high marks.
A sign of hope has made it inside the prison walls due to these remarkable learning achievements. Certificates will be issued to the successful prisoners in the next few days, as per the District Management Committee (DMC). Unfortunately, not all inmates had the chance to make use of this success, because some of them were unable to get a passing score for their matriculation exams.
