Jaipur: A Pakistani national lodged in the central jail here was allegedly killed Wednesday in a brawl with other prisoners.

According to the police, Shakul Ullah, a Pakistani national, was killed by some people at around 1 pm on Wednesday. "The incident occurred over a dispute on volume of television. Further investigation is underway," Laxman Gaur, Additional Commissioner, Jaipur, told ANI.

The killing in Jaipur prison has been reported amid heightened tension between India and Pakistan after the Pulwama terror attack.

An official said Shakrullah (50), who was from Pakistan Punjab's Sialkot, was hit with a large stone during the prison fight.

Inspector general (Prisons) Rupinder Singh said Shakrullah was lodged in the jail's special cell since 2011 and was serving life sentence under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

Senior administration and police officials rushed to the jail after learning about the death.

Singh said the post mortem will be conducted on the jail premises under judicial supervision.
