he was not empowered to grant permission for writing or publishing books of jail inmates and only a district judge can allow this.
However, the jail administration can provide her with stationary in case a written permission is granted by the judge, he added.
Sharma said the dentist is teaching jail inmates, including women, since she has been lodged in the jail on April 30.
