The jailer also has rights
The prison director has the authority to grant 30 days more remission of the offender’s sentence. It is usually given freely to almost all convicts except for those who indulge in gross indiscipline.

The Director General of Police (Prisons) or the Additional Director General of Police (Prisons) may grant a third exemption for an additional 60 days, but this is usually granted in exceptional cases and with political approval. In the case of Sidhu, due to his closeness to Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, he has a good chance of taking advantage of this exemption. CM recently had a meeting with Sidhu.
