On Oct 7 last year, a convicted prisoner, Asghar Ali Mansoori, killed himself in Nashik Jail. Knowing fully that the officials would tamper with evidence, he wrapped his suicide note in a polythene bag and swallowed it. The note named five officials.

Both the judiciary & the state govt have failed to stop this blatant brutality continuing at Nashik Jail. Asghar Ali Mansoori and now Avinash Jadhav have named several officials of corruption, torture and abetment of suicide. But the prison department fails to act upon it. (ends)
