The Human Rights Defenders Network formed by INSEC has submitted the memorandum to the District Administration Office for immediate construction as the detention house of a female detainee was demolished and was not rebuilt. It was found during the monitoring of the Jajarkot District Police Office.
Mentioned in the memorandum – ‘We can assume that women inmates will suffer social and mental anguish if they have to be sent to other districts without the facility to keep women inmates in the district. We would like to draw your attention to the construction of new structures in the long run and in the short term, the existing structures should be made close to the existing women’s prisons. We also want to draw the attention of the government towards the laws made for the inmates security. ‘
