QALA-I-NAW (PANinfo-icon): An inmate committed suicide by hanging himself in a prison in the Qadis district of northwestern Badghis province, officials said on Saturday.

Nazar Muhammad, a resident of the Jahan Dosti village, hanged himself in a prison cell, deputy police chief, Col. Muhammad Qadir, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Muhammad was jailed for killing the nephew of a pro-government commander, named Hajji Akhtar Muhammad, two months ago.

Ramazan Khan, director of justice department, said the prisoner's body had been sent to a forensic laboratory.

Initial investigations suggested the prisoner had committed suicide, said Badghis Public Healthinfo-icon Director Dr. Abdul Aziz.
