Keonjhar: In a shocking turn of events, a Keonjhar district jail’s undertrial prisoner passed away today due to a fatal heart attack. And the cause is said to be the death sentence for his fellow undertrial.
The deceased Turi Munda (55) was booked under POCSO Act and his trial was underway. As per reports, he tumbled down just as he was about to have food. In a serious condition, the jail doctor sent him to Keonjhar District Headquarters Hospital where the doctors declared him ‘brought dead’.
It is important to note here that another under trial from same jail, Sunil Nayak was sentenced to death yesterday by a special ADJ POCSO court. It is believed that the shock of the death sentence verdict triggered the heart attack in Munda.
