A day earlier, the FO spokesperson rejected India’s report regarding Shakirullah’s death in Jaipur jail. Indian authorities had informed the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi that Shakirullah sustained injuries following a scuffle between fellow inmates in the television room in the jail, which proved fatal.
However, according to some Indian media reports he was lynched.
Foreign Office spokesperson in a statement said it is incomprehensible how a scuffle between prisoners in an established government set up was allowed to escalate to the extent that Shakirullah sustained fatal injuries.
“Security and safety of Pakistani inmates/prisoners in Indian jails is the responsibility of the government of India which should have taken enhanced measures to prevent this,” he added.
