Inmate of sub-jail beaten to death

Staff Reporter

BERHAMPUR: An undertrial prisoner was allegedly beaten to death by his rivals inside Aska sub-jail in Ganjam district on Tuesday night.

The deceased, Suresh Nahak (26) was an undertrial prisoner in the jail. Three major criminal cases including a murder were pending against him. According to Deputy Inspector General (DIG) prisons of Berhampur, Dharanidhar Das the prisoner was earlier lodged in Bhanjanagar sub-jail. But he continued to be too violent and erratic. As he also attacked jail officials in Bhanjanagar sub-jail, he had been shifted to Aska sub-jail. As a precautionary measure with proper permission the jail officials were keeping this violent undertrial prisoner in shackles.

Six inmates of Aska sub-jail were involved in the murder of Nahak.

Mr. Das said no sharp weapons were used in the assault. They used whatever they could find in their hand to beat him up despite intervention of the jail staff. The six assaulters had forcibly entered the ward of the deceased while the roll call of the sub-jail was on. It is alleged that Nahak could not escape from the clutches of his attackers as his legs were in chains.

Jail officials managed to take control of the situation and Nahak was rescued from his attackers. He was initially treated by the jail doctor and later shifted to Aska hospital. Later, he was shifted to MKCG medical college hospital, where doctors declared him as ‘brought dead'. Mr. Das said he suspected past rivalry between criminal gangs may be the reason behind the attack. A case was registered at Aska police station.
