A 35-year-old Tihar jail inmate, who was allegedly trying to escape the prison in a PWD truck, on Tuesday slipped from the vehicle and died. Pappu - a drug addict - was arrested on July 18, 2013 in connection with a theft case. He was lodged in Jail no 1 of the high security prison, jail authorities said.

He was sent to a drug de-addiction centre a day later and returned on Monday from the centre, they said. "On Tuesday, at around 10 AM, he jumped onto a moving truck hired by a PWD contractor to bring construction material."

"The truck was going out of the jail after unloading the construction material. But he fell down and sustained fatal injuries," Tihar Jail spokesperson Sunil Gupta said. He was rushed to Deen Dayal Upadhayay Hospital where he was declared dead, they said, adding the matter is being probed by a metropolitan magistrate.
