Central Jail Rawalpindi (also slanged as Adyala jail by local residents of surrounding rural area) is a prominent jail in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
The Central Jail Rawalpindi was constructed in between the late 1970s and early 1980s during the military regime of General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, after hanging to death of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, the ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan on 4 April 1979 in District Jail Rawalpindi. The latter jail was demolished and converted into a public park. The Jail is situated on Rawalpindi - Adyala Road near village Dahgal about 13 kilometres toward west of District Courts and the defunct / demolished old District Jail Rawalpindi. The village Adyala (with whose relation the Jail is slanged as Adyala Jail) is located about 4 kilometres west of the Jail.
