FILE – In this April 26, 2012 file photo, prison officials stand in the background as an inmate of Tihar jail, the largest complex of prisons in South Asia, listens to a band play during a musical evening for inmates in New Delhi, India. India’s Tihar Jail is a land of bakeries and carpentry shops, where inmates compete in music contests, take classes and perform intensive Buddhist meditation as part of their rehabilitation. Tihar Jail is also a vast, overcrowded facility, crammed with people awaiting trial who sleep on concrete floors, face daily threats from other prisoners and are shaken down for bribes from their poorly paid jailers, according to human rights lawyers and former inmates there. The two sides of India’s most famous jail emerged this week when a man accused in the notorious rape of a woman aboard a New Delhi bus was found dead in his cell, Monday, March 11, 2013, either a suicide, according to jail officials, or a victim of foul play, according to his family.
