Pakistan on Thursday expressed reservations about the death of a Pakistani prisoner found hanging inside a jail in Kashmir last week. Jail authorities had claimed Shaukat Ali, had committed suicide by using a scarf to hang himself from the iron bars of a toilet window at the jail in Jammu. Jail officials also said 42-year-old Ali was under medication for depression and had recently been examined by a psychiatrist in jail. Pakistan Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson, Tasnim Aslam, told a weekly news briefing in Islamabad that circumstances under which the death occurred were extremely suspicious. "About Shaukat Ali who died in jail, an unnatural death, we were told that he committed suicide. There were also reports that he was mentally not a balanced person. And that begs a question
