Visitors have been allowed into Rawalpindi Central Jail after it banned all sorts of visits nearly four months ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The jail administration on Wednesday issued a schedule of the meetings which will be organised under the strict standard operating procedures (SOPs), reports The Express Tribune.

Under the latest rules, only family members will be allowed to meet their loved ones inside the jails.

But, there will be a restriction on inmates meeting with children and the elderly.

Visitor meetings had been banned in March to prevent the virus from spreading amongst the jail population.

The jail authorities have fixed days for meetings by dividing inmates based on the nature of their crimes.

Convicts imprisoned for criminal cases such as fraud, robbery, terrorism, and those sentenced to death can meet their families on Monday.

Inmates convicted or currently under-trial for murder or facing the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) cases, will meet their families on Tuesday.

Inmates indicted in the kidnapping, rape, and terrorism cases can meet their families on Wednesday while on Thursday, families of foreigners and women criminals can visit the Adiala Jail.

Friday has been reserved for families of petty criminals, while Saturday has been allocated for inmates who are 25-years-of-age or lower.
