Indira Gandhi National Open University, IGNOU has organized a Science Quiz for jail inmates of Central Prison in Nagpur.

As many as 30 questions were asked and prisoners displayed a tremendous amount of knowledge with their quick replies even before the question could be completed, authorities said.

The event was a joint initiative between the IGNOU and Nagpur chapter of the Indian Science Congress.
The winners were awarded merit certificates and a book on science on the sidelines of the National Science Day on February 28.

Vice-Chancellor of RSTM Nagpur University, Vilas Sapkal, IGNOU Regional Director Dr P Shivaswroop and
