A 23-year-old prisoner sustained severe injuries after he was attacked by a fellow convict over a silly issue at the Parappana Agrahara central prison on Monday. His condition is said to be critical.

Ravikumar Kamanna, with multiple injuries, was shifted to the prison hospital soon after. Due to severity of the injuries he was later shifted to the Victoria hospital.

According to prison officials, Kamanna and Choudappa came out of Tower II's B Barrack of the central prison for lunch break. Further on, over an insignificant issue, both started arguing with each other. In the fight that ensued Choudappa attacked Kamanna with kicks and blows.

Fellow inmates and prison security staff rushed to rescue Kamanna, but by then he had collapsed and lost consciousness. Choudappa, meanwhile, was locked up in the cell. The prison staff rushed Kamanna to the hospital. After examining him, doctors referred him to the Victoria hospital. Kamanna's condition is critical, the doctors at the Victoria hospital said.

Chief superintendent M Somashekar filed a complaint at the Parappana Agrahara police station against Choudappa. Police then booked Choudappa for assault and intentional insult to provoke breach of peace.

In October last year, Tabrez, a convict at the prison, sustained grievous injuries after he was attacked by an under-trial, Saleem T P, at the prison hospital over breakfast. Saleem had attacked Tabrez with a tablespoon after a heated exchange.
