Ram Singh hanging: Tihar struggles to explain Delhi gangrape death

Tihar

n Can a noose prepared from rug threads be strong enough to take the body weight of an adult? Officials admit this needs to be looked at.

n Singh's family said it is not possible that he could have fastened a noose to a grille and hanged himself. His right hand was dysfunctional and he had an iron rod inserted in his left hand after he was severely injured in a road accident.

n Police were informed about the death two hours after Singh was found hanging. Jail officials said it took time to call a doctor, confirm death and then inform senior prison officials. Police said they will ascertain why it took the jail authorities so long to inform the local police.
