'psycho killer' attempts suicide in Nimapara jail

Nimapara: In a bizarre incident, an under-trial prisoner reportedly attempted to commit suicide in the Nimapara cirle jail in Puri district late on Sunday night.

The under-trial was identified as the much-hyped 'psycho killer' Buddhadeb Behera. 
He cut his body at different places with a sharp weapon as an attempt to end life.

He was first shifted to Nimapara and later to Puri hospital. However, as Buddhadeb's condition deteriorated due to excess bleeding, he was then shifted to SCB in Cuttack.

Buddhadeb has been in jail custody on charges of murder and other offences.
He is allegedly involved in a number of murder and criminal cases.
