This unit is a secure facility, which houses patients who have been referred by the High Courts for assessment and treatment of psychiatric illness. The ward is under the supervision of a consultant forensic psychiatrist.

Patients who have been referred by the District Courts (for lesser offenses) are housed in the general wards and are produced before the Magistrate every two weeks at a special court convened on the hospital premises.

A Forensic Psychiatry Office has been established to look after various aspects of administration for the patients.
