MYSURU & MANGALURU: Director General of Police (Prisons) Sathyanarayana Rao visited Mysuru Central Jail on Friday following the murder of an undertrail on Thursday.
Mohammed Mustafa of Kavoor village in Mangaluru, an accused in the murder of a right wing activist Prashanth Poojary in Mangaluru, was stabbed to death by Kiran Shetty, a fellow undertrial, inside the Mysuru prison.
The DGP visited the prison along with Mysuru Police Commissioner AS Subramanyeshwara Rao and other officials. Sources said they took stock of the incident and inspected the security measures inside the prison. They inquired about measures taken by prison authorities in the wake of clashes between the accused and the victim.
Mustafa’s body buried
The body of Mustafa was brought to his house in Kavoor and buried at Panjimogaru Jamia Masjid, on Friday.
Final rites were held at Adyar, Kannur. Later, it was brought to his house in Kavoor, where hundreds of his relatives and friends had gathered.
Meanwhile, Popular Front of India district president Haneef Khan Katipalla blamed both BJP and Sangh Parivar. “As BJP leaders have been visiting the jail, they might have indirectly caused the murder of Musthafa. Strict action should be taken against jail officials as they failed to prevent the murder,” he said and urged to release compensation of `50 lakh to the family of Mustafa.
