New Delhi: A prisoner of Tihar jail stabbed another inmate to death allegedly to avenge the rape of his sister six years ago, police said on Tuesday.

On Monday, 21-year-old Zakir stabbed Mohammad Mehtab (27), a resident of Nizamuddin, inside Tihar jail number 8/9.

During investigation, it was found that Mehtab was accused in the rape case of Zakir’s minor sister in 2014 at the Ambedkar Nagar police station area. The victim reportedly later committed suicide.

Zakir wanted to avenge his sisters death but as Mehtab was serving a sentence at Tihar jail, he committed a murder in the year 2018 in order to enter jail. Since he was below 20 at that time he was lodged at a different section of the jail while Mehtab was in another part.

He was moved to the same section as Mehtab, upon turning 21 but he was still not in the same ward. Zakir then started picking up fights with the inmates he shared his cell with and was soon shifted near Mehtab’s ward in jail 5.

Mehtab was stabbed multiple times, including on his stomach and neck, by a sharp metal object by Zakir at around 6 am, police said.

The wounds on Mehtab’s neck were deep and he was given first-aid in jail dispensary. He was then taken to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital where doctors pronounced him brought dead.

Zakir was recently transferred to ward no 4 of jail number 8. Mehatab was already lodged in same ward at the first floor, police said.

This transfer was done on the request of the accused as he had a fight with other inmates in his previous ward. He looking for an opportunity to take revenge from Mehtab, they said.

When other inmates came out for morning prayers on Monday at around 6 am, the accused went upstairs and stabbed Mehtab with a knife-like object, the DCP said.

A murder case has been registered at Hari Nagar police station against Zakir.

Mehtab was an accused in a rape case in Ambedkar Nagar in 2014 and was in jail since then. Zakir, a murder accused, has been in jail since 2018.
