"A Pakistani prisoner was allegedly murdered today in the central jail. The matter will be investigated by a judicial magistrate and also by the police," Rajasthan Director General of Police Kapil Garg told PTI.
According to an official, Shakrullah (50) was from Pakistan Punjab's Sialkot and was hit with a large stone during the skirmish.
Singh informed that Shakrullah was lodged in the jail's special cell since 2011 and was serving life sentence under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
This comes days after the worst-ever terror attack in Pulwama, where over 40 CRPF jawans lost their lives after a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist rammed an explosive-laden vehicle on the security forces' convoy.
Singh said the post mortem will be conducted on the jail premises under judicial supervision. More details awaited.
