A day after a local court sentenced a man to life imprisonment for killing his minor daughter, the convict allegedly committed suicide by hanging inside Udaipur jail, police said.
“Ramnivas Gurjar (40) hanged himself with a piece of cloth in the bathroom of the jail. He was serving life sentence in a murder case,” SHO of Surajpole police station Ramsumer Meena said.
The matter came to light during a head count on Friday evening and his family members have been informed, he added.
“He was served life imprisonment by a local court on Thursday,” Meena further said.
The body will be handed over to family members after a post mortem on Saturday.
