The National Human Rights Commission, Nepal Bar Association, High Court Bar Association, INSEC and Advocacy Forum have jointly monitored the detention cell of the District Police Office and Area Police Office, Kohalpur.
The monitoring team met the detainees and got information about their condition.

According to Basanta Gautam of the Advocacy Forum, there were 44 detainees in the District Police Office during the monitoring.
The quality of food should be improved and the direct amount should be increased. Sunil Kumar Shrestha, vice-president of the Nepal Bar, said that the meeting environment should be facilitated by maintaining physical distance, separate meeting room should be set up, and statements should be made only after reciting the statement once the statement was taken.
Similarly, the PCR examination of the detainees on various charges is being delayed and the police are facing problems in the management of the detainees, said Bikash Acharya, Chairperson of the Nepalgunj High Court.
