Nagpur jail Superintendent denies suicide attempt by Hinganghat accused

Nagpur: Nagpur Central Jail Superintendent Anup Kumre has rubbished the media reports claiming that the accused in the sensational murder of a woman lecturer from Hinganghat, has tried to commit suicide in the jail.

There were reports in couple of media that the accused Vikesh Nagrale who was sent to Nagpur Central jail under judicial custody for 14 days tried to end his life by hanging himself in his anda cell.
