The news hogged the headlines in the wake of Pulwama terror attack. It was assumed that the prisoner was murdered in an outrageous reaction against the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir. But the investigations revealed that the two groups of prisoners fought over an item song that was being played on the TV in the jail’s common room.

Shakir Ullah aka Mohammed Hanif was lodged in Jaipur Central Jail on espionage charges.

The Rajasthan government removed Jaipur jail superintendent and a jailor from duty, while suspended two other prison officials following the murder of Pakistan prisoner Shakir Ullah.
