NEW DELHI (AP) - A Pakistani prisoner serving a life sentence in India died Thursday from a beating that occurred a day after a convicted Indian spy was killed inside a Pakistani prison, and the rival nations have accused each other of not doing enough to protect prisoners.
Pakistani diplomat Sultan Hasan said the inmate, Sanaullah Ranjay, died in a hospital in northern India after slipping into a coma. He had been beaten up by a fellow inmate Friday in the prison in Jammu, the winter capital of Indian-ruled Kashmir.
