Inside detained area, has 120 isolated cells, divided into two zones, each has 60 rooms and 60 rooms without roofs, also known as the “solarium room” to torture prisoners.

This is called “Tiger Cages” because the prison is built into “cage” for detention, width 1.45 m, length 2.5 m. All daily activities like eating, sleeping, going to the toilet are all in one place. Every cell has iron bars on the roof ceiling, above is the walkway for guards to control and monitor the prisoner who kenneled below. On the ceiling of each cell have bucket of water and a bucket of lime. When prisoner is thirsty, the guards pour water down and sprinkled lime down as punishments for those who have signs of protest.
