An Indian fisherman was today found dead in a Pakistani jail here. Media reports identified the prisoner found dead in Landhi jail as Kishore Bhagwan. The cause of Bhagwan's death is yet to be ascertained. His body has been shifted to a hospital.

Indian diplomatic sources said they are yet to hear from Pakistani officials on the matter.
Incidentally, the body of another Indian fisherman Bhikha Lakha Shiyal, 35, who died in December, is yet to be handed over to Indian authorities.
