Naini jail inmate hangs self

ALLAHABAD: A 31-year-old man lodged at Naini Central Jail since August 2013 committed suicide on Monday morning by hanging himself from a pipeline inside the jail premises. 

The deceased has been identified as Jitendra Jaiswal, a resident of Nawabganj. Jail superintendent Ambrish Gaur told TOI that the Jaiswal had been sent behind bars under charges pertaining to the Dowry Prevention Act and section 304 of IPC. Jaiswal's co-inmates spotted him hanging from a pipeline with a towel and took him to the hospital on jail campus. 

He however died during treatment. No suicide note was recovered.Naini police said the deceased had married twice and had been charged with burning one of his wives and a minor to death. Police said though the exact reason behind the suicide was yet to be ascertained, frustration and stress may have led him to the extreme step as his bail plea was rejected by the high court a week ago.

Therefore it is kind request
  1. To conduct an inquiry in this incident of custodial death under section 176(1)A Cr.PC by a Judicial Magistrate
  2. To provide compensation to the victim's family.
3.   To ensure Videography of the Post-Mortem Report of the victim& the same is informed to NHRC.

Thanking You
Sincerely Yours
Rohit Kumar
Detention Watch Co-ordinator
