Punjab: 27-year-old inmate ends life in Amritsar jail

Amritsar: A 27-year-old inmate allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in a bathroom of a barrack in Amritsar Central Jail on Wednesday. The deceased has been identified as Baljit Singh of Teda village in Ajnala subdivision.

According to the jail officials, Baljit had been lodged in the jail since January this year. They said he had been booked under Sections 363 (kidnapping), 366 (abducting or inducing woman to compel her for marriage) and 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The officials said Baljit’s fellow inmates found him hanging in the barrack’s bathroom in the morning. The undertrial used a rope to hang himself from an iron grill in the bathroom. The officials added that the body of the deceased was handed over to his family after post-mortem.

However, the family has claimed that something fishy had happened with regards to Baljit Singh in jail, which they are not informed about. They also added that the post-mortem report should reveal the real reason behind his death.
