Dozens of inmates released from Kunduz jail

May 13, 2015 - 15:03

KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Thirty prisoners, including two children, three womeninfo-icon and 25 men, were released from a prison in northern Kunduz province, an official said on Wednesday.

The release happened following a presidential decree on the eve of Mujahidin’s Victory Day. Before their release, the prisoners were kept in congested rooms.

Prison in charge Col. Mohammad Aslam Kohistani said the inmates were kept in lock-up for killing, kidnapping and other criminal cases and they were undergoing jail terms ranging from six months to one year.

He said the released men completed their jail term and some benefited from the presidential decree.

Nazakmir, who was jailed for 18 months following a traffic accident, said jail authorities behaved with inmates harshly.

Currently, 750 prisoners were languishing in Kunduz jail, including 35 women, while officials of the jail said they started construction of more barracks for prisoners.
