Inmate beaten to death at Welikada Featured

A prison inmate was murdered last morning (07) at Welikada prison after he was transferred, as punishment, to a ward of mentally-deranged persons.

The others at the ward had beaten him to death, prison sources said.

The sources said the transfer had been made in violation of the prison laws, which require medical recommendation to admit an inmate to this ward.

Now, a plan is being made to cover up this incident.
