DOLAKHAd, May 22: Of late, inmates at the District Prison, Dolakha, have been spending their nights in misery in a congested two-story prison building originally meant for only female prisoners. The situation is such that as many as 25 inmates live in a single room. While some sleep in the passages, others remain awake all night in the narrow space behind the stairs.

RUKUM, Nov 13:  Rabin Khatri, 3, of Banfikot Rural Municipality of Rukum (West) has just become eligible for going to school. But sadly, he has been living in the District Prison for committing no crime. This has not only deprived him of education but also has badly affected his mental health.
