UTP killed in brawl in Choudwar jail

Tuesday, 25 June 2019 | PNS | CUTTACK

An under-trial prisoner (UTP) was killed in a clash in the Choudwar Circle Jail following a brawl with another inmate on Monday.  

The deceased was identified as Ramesh Pradhan, a resident of Tulasipur in Cuttack city. He had been lodged in the jail for the last five years over a case of murder that took place in 2011.

Pradhan and another prisoner, Jalandhar Samal, had an altercation while both were working in the prison garden. In a fit of rage, Samal slit the   throat of the victim with a sharp weapon.

Pradhan was rushed to SCB Medical College Hospital in a critical condition, where he succumbed to the injuries. He was supposed to be released from jail on July 3.

The culprit, who is currently serving life imprisonment was detained and interrogated by the jail authorities. The incident has again raised questions on the security measures in the highly sensitive jail, where many hardened criminals of the State are lodged.
