CHITWAN: A 15-bed quarantine facility has been established inside the Chitwan jail to prevent the possible outbreak of coronavirus within and from this prison.

The decision to this effect was made after some 11 prisoners were brought to the overcrowded prison from Nawalpur as the district does not have a prison.

According to Chitwan jail chief Kamal Prasad Kafle, they received 11 new inmates from Nawalpur, and were brought to Chitwan jail due to special circumstances.

Kafle said that the inmates in Chitwan jail were apprehensive about COVID-19 infection due to the arrival of the new inmates.
