Life Convict Found Dead in Chennai Prison, Suspected Suicide

A life convict, identified as Gaja alias Gajendran, aged 63, was discovered dead in a washroom within the Central Prison, Puzhal in Chennai. Gajendran had been incarcerated since 2009 for the murder of his first wife, and his plea for early release had been rejected, with the Madras High Court declining to grant him relief.

His body was found early on Tuesday, prompting prison staff to alert authorities and the police. An investigation has been initiated, with authorities suspecting that Gajendran may have taken his own life.
