“Although I am waiting for an official report of the incident, preliminary investigation reveals there was negligence on the part of the jail staff,” he said. An FIR was lodged with the police in this regard, the IG Prison said.

Pala was sentenced by a court to life term imprisonment for killing his brother-in-law in 2018. In January last year, two other prisoners had escaped from the same jail when they were taken to Jowai Civil Hospital.
