The incident occurred on April 3. “From now on, such an incident will not happen, and the accused will be punished for sure,” jail superintendent Noor Hussain said.

“When I went to visit my son, he showed me his wounds. Blood was coming out of a wound on his back. No medicine was applied to it, and he was getting no treatment,” said a family member of one of the prisoners.
