The deceased has been identified as Rajkishore Shah, a resident of Chaksale village under Hajipur's Lalganj Police Station area, was lodged in jail since February 16 and died due to illness on Sunday. As per information, this was followed by jail officials handcuffing the deceased and sending him to the district hospital under the guise of Shah being sick.

The jail administration, as per sources, wrote a letter to Kishore's family after him being taken to the hospital, instead of instantly informing after his death. Advertisement
