Coochbehar (WB): A 27-year-old Bangladeshi
prisoner died in the district jail here, after he allegedly
hanged himself, at the end of his seven-month jail term
ordered by a local court for trespassing into the country.

Last night, Sanjay Dutta was found hanging dead behind
the library of the Coochbehar District Correctional Home, SP
Kalyan Banerjee said today.

Dutta, a patient of mental depression, had on July 25
completed his seven-month jail term.

A judicial probe has been ordered into the incident and
the post-mortem of the body would be recorded by a video
camera, the SP said.

Sending the body back to Bangladesh might also be
considered if the situation so demanded, the SP said.
