QUETTA, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – September 22, 2022): Parliamentary Secretary for Science and Technology, Law and Parliamentary Affairs Dr. Rubaba Khan Buledi said on Thursday that the implementation of modern prison reforms is necessary to make provincial prisons an ideal model of reformed society.
