The jail has a capacity of 40 prisoners, 15 women, and 25 men. However, there are 72 inmates/prisoners assigned to the prison. There are eight women and 64 men.
The prison has 17 inmates/detainees with complex mental illnesses, three taking depression medication, and 14 with minor mental illnesses. Similarly, there are three senior citizens, two men, and one woman.
According to Rachana Budathoki, there are 14 chronic patients. Three detainees are imprisoned due to a lack of timely resolution of their court case. About 28 prisoners voted in the recent election.
