RATNANAGAR (Chitwan), Feb 2: An inmate serving a term at the District Prison, Bharatpur has died today. 

The inmate identified as 23-year-old Badal Shahi of Chhatre Arukharka-4 in Nuwakot district had been suffering from brain tumour. He breathed his last at around 6 this morning, the Chief of the District Prison, Kamal Kafle, said. 

Shahi was transferred to Chitwan on December 13, 2016 for treatment of barin tumour at the local cancer hospital. He was sentenced to jail on various cases related to robbery and other crimes.
