The incident took place yesterday afternoon when both of them were working in the jail's kitchen. The deceased was identified as Sharad Pardeshi, who was from Chalisgaon in Jalgaon district in north Maharashtra.

He was serving a 10-year jail term after being convicted in a rape case, superintendent of the jail Rajkumar Sali, said. The injured inmate, Chhagan alias Rishi Jadhav (32), a resident of Jalna district, has been admitted to Nashik civil hospital following the incident.
