CHITWAN: Number of inmates suffering from skin disease is increasing in District Jail, Chitwan due to scorching heat.

Senior health assistant at district office, Lekhnath Poudel, said 300 prisoners were found suffering dermatitis for 15 days.

The inmates have been suffering from skin diseases including ringworm and boil. Scorching heat has aggravated the condition of prisoners who are staying in congested rooms, he shared.

Problems of skin disease and diarrhoea are taking toll following the rising temperature.

Poudel added 25 prisoners were found suffering diarrhoea. There are 740 prisoners in the jail- too many beyond the capacity.

The jail is capacious for accommodating 280 people. There are 693 men, 47 women prisoners as well as four children.
