A foreign prisoner, who had been languishing in Adiala Jail under the Foreign Act, died at the jail hospital. The cause of the death could not be ascertained.
The deceased was identified as Zaid Muhammad, and was a Kenyan citizen. He had been put in jail after he was arrested for illegally staying in Pakistan. The body was shifted to the District Headquarters Hospital for a post-mortem.
Jail sources said that a local court while sentencing him for illegal stay in Pakistan had directed the authorities to deport him after the jail term.
The sources further said that they were in touch with Kenyan officials in Islamabad to make arrangements to dispatch the body abroad.
