Uruzgan female prisoners get separate cell

Uruzgan female prisoners get separate cell

Dec 14, 2017 - 18:30

TARINKOT (Pajhwok): A separate cell for female prisoners has been inaugurated at the central prison in Uruzgan province, an official said on Thursday.

Deputy Police Chief Abdul Qavi Umari told Pajhwok Afghan News that earlier the women inmates were kept in rented houses.

“Now a separate cell for woman prisoners has been opened in the central prison and has related facilities,” he said.

Col. Abdul Wali Sapi, in-charge of the central jail in Tarinkot, said policewomen had been hired to serve as guards at the women’s cell.

One of these prisoners, Nazia, who has been sentenced to two years in jail, spent six months of her jail sentence at the house of a policewoman.

She felt secure after being transferred to the new facility. “In the house, I was afraid someone may harm me.”
