Inmates being treated harshly in Kilagi prison
PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): Family members of prisoners expressed concerns the way the inmates were being treated inside the Kilagi prison in northern Baghlan province.
They feared the situation would again lead prisoners to clash with security forces.
On June 26, two prisoners were killed and 18 injured in a clash among prisoners and security forces inside the jail. The inmates accused police of treating them harshly.
Muhammad Safdar Muhsini, relative of a prisoner, alleged jail authority was dealing prisoners ruthlessly. He said inmates wanted some prison and police officers dismissed.
Governor Sultan Muhammad Ebadi said a body tasked to evaluate the fighting between inmates and jail officials had yet to submit its report.
