Islamabad, July 5 (ANI): A 60-year-old Indian fisherman, Dadu Bhai, dies in the Malir District jail of Pakistan.

The Assistant Superintendent of Police, Shunail H. Shah, said that Dadu had completed his prison term and was only awaiting release orders to reunite with his family.

Shah said that Dadu had suddenly fallen ill on Wednesday after his blood pressure dropped drastically and was receiving treatment at the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC).

The jail authorities said that Dadu's body has been shifted to the Edhi mortuary as the authorities cannot conduct a postmortem unless they get permission from the Indian embassy. (ANI)
