A Pakistani prisoner held at an Indian jail was brutally stoned to death, by inmates, whilst the guards watched on.
According to reports in Indian media, the Pakistani inmate identified as Shakirullah was being held at the Jaipur Central Jail in Rajasthan.
On Wednesday Pakistani officials are seeking a response from New Delhi on reports of the brutal killing of a Pakistani prisoner by Indian inmates in an Indian jail in retaliation of the Pulwama Incident.
The Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi has officially raised the issue with Indian authorities, requesting them to urgently authenticate the report and respond.
The Rajasthan inspector general of police in-charge of prisons confirmed that Shakilullah had been murdered.
The murder of the Pakistani inmates comes after India has levelled allegations against Pakistan of being involved in the Pulwama attack in occupied Kashmir.
Tensions are always high between India and Pakistan and have worsened over the past week as New Delhi piled blame on Islamabad for the Pulwama attack. Pakistan’s leadership has strongly refuted the allegations.
