Initially, the duo will not be assigned any job as the court is yet to pronounce the quantum of the sentence, the sources said.

"They will be treated like under-trials and will not be given any work. They will get work after the punishment is pronounced in the case on Wednesday," they said.

They are entitled to two interviews, each of half-an-hour duration, every week. The trio will get normal food -- dal, sabzi, roti
