New Delhi, April 12:  Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann will meet AAP National Convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in Tihar Jail on April 15, prison sources said on Friday.

The decision was taken on Friday at an advance security liaison meeting, which started at around 11 a.m. and continued till late afternoon involving the Additional DGP, Punjab, Delhi Police, and Tihar administration officials.

“No special arrangement has been made for the meeting, which will be held as per the jail manual. Today’s meeting was held to discuss the security arrangements to be made for the Punjab CM,” said a source, adding that this is a mandatory practice as per the jail manual before any CM visits the prison to meet an inmate.
