The Supreme Court Wednesday said it would constitute a committee under the chairmanship of a retired Supreme Court judge to look into problems in jails, including overcrowding. The Committee will also suggest measures to deal with the problems.

A bench comprising Justices M B Lokur, S Abdul Nazeer and Deepak Gupta expressed its displeasure that the government has collected a huge amount under the orders of the apex court but the funds are not being utilised properly.
