This image, taken in late 1993, shows what appears to be the full extent of the Utritu (Lhasa Prison) area. It was not high security like Drapchi Prison at that time. The image is marked up showing People’s Armed Police accommodation, main cell-blocks and living quarters. The residential areas near the main gate could have been used by families of prisoners. Image used with kind permission of the photographer.
