Muzaffarnagar, Nov 21 (PTI) A total of 325 inmates lodged in the overcrowded district jail here, including lifers and long-term inmates, will be shifted to a prison in Noida, an official said on Wednesday.

The district authorities recommended this to reduce the burden on the prison, Jail Superintendent A K Saxena said.

Over 2,000 inmates from two districts — Muzaffarnagar and Shamli — are lodged in the prison here against the capacity of 870, he said.

Saxena said a confirmation from the jail department headquarters in Lucknow is awaited.
