RAJBIRAJ, Dec 28: The Saptari District Prison here is accommodating thrice the number of inmates than its normal capacity.
The prison has capacity to accommodate around 125 inmates. But there are at present 315 inmates including 18 women, officiating jailor Satya Narayan Yadav said.
According to him, there are 196 male inmates in Block A, 107 male inmates in Block B and 18 women inmates in Block C of the prison.
The prison is overcrowded causing much inconvenience to the inmates. The inmates have to stay in queue for a long time to fill water from the tap and use the toilet.
Further, the prison house is old and not spacious enough to accommodate this many inmates. It is a 67 years old structure and is made of stone and mud.
Jailor Yadav said the main structure of the prison is very old and risky. He stressed on the need of constructing new prison.
