Kandhamal: After being brutally attacked by an inmate who is serving life sentence in Phulbani jail, a prisoner succumbed to his injuries in Berhampur today while undergoing treatment.

Reportedly a few days back, Nayak was bludgeoned by one Kanhu Charan Pradhan, who is serving a life sentence, inside Phulbani Jail. Soon after the attack, Nayak suffered grievous injuries on his head and was rushed to Phulbani Medical by the jail authorities.
He was later shifted to MKCG Medical Hospital in Berhmapur, when his condition worsened. However, Nayak breathed his last today morning.
Notably on November 11, a prisoner had died after allegedly being attacked by another inmate inside Balasore jail. Following that, two warders were suspended today for dereliction of duty.
