The incident happened inside the hospital in jail in the afternoon when the inmates were taken for a medical check up.

The jail officials said that after the sepoy asked one of the inmates to stand in queue, he allegedly slapped him. The sepoy, in return, thrashed the inmate after which the second inmate began a fight with him.
