Team of INSEC and National Human Rights Commission Monitor Waste Disposal of Sindhuli Jail
A team from National Human Rights Commission and INSEC Bagmati Province Office monitored the waste disposal of Sindhuli Jail located in Kamalamai Municipality-5 Aiselujanghar of Sindhuli, on May 18, 2023.
Locals complained to the team, at the unmanaged waste disposal from the jail has polluted the environment of their locality. The jail lacks proper waste management.
The local Ganesh Bahadur Shrestha complained to the team, which included the Chief of the National Human Rights Commission Bagmati Province, Yagya Adhikari, and the Chief of INSEC Bagmati Province, Ganesh Bhandari. The locals said that the prison administration did not respond even though they repeatedly requested the prison administration to properly manage the waste coming out of toilets and kitchens.
He said that the prison mixes the sewage directly into the Sagugaira River, causing the local environment to stink.
He said to the team, ‘During the day, the stench subsides, however during the morning and night, it smells so bad that you cannot even go out of your house. In the past, we used to feed the river water to our cattle, but now the cattle are getting sick due to the polluted water of the river.’
“Due to the polluted water of the river, even vegetable crops such as rice, garlic, and onion have started dying,” he said.
Jailer Kushal Neupane said that the prison administration had started necessary initiatives for its management. He said that they will manage the kitchen and bathroom wastage properly by making a technical design and asking for a budget.
Sindhuli prison has 763 prisoners, 6 boys and 8 girls and 14 dependent children.
