In a distressing incident, 63-year-old Chinese national Li Jiaki, detained at the Shaheed Khudiram Bose Central Jail in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, inflicted serious injuries upon himself. He was found unconscious and severely wounded in the toilet of the jail's hospital ward. The jail administration swiftly transferred him to SKMCH for better medical treatment late on Friday evening. Authorities suspect that Li Jiaki attempted suicide. Just a day prior, on Thursday, he had been remanded to the jail by the Brahmpura police station for entering Bihar via Nepal without a visa.

Details of the Incident

The jail administration questioned fellow inmates in the hospital ward. According to them, Li Jiaki broke his glasses and tried to injure his private parts with the shards. The injury resulted in significant blood loss, causing him to lose consciousness in the toilet. Security personnel responded immediately to the commotion, rushing him to the hospital to commence timely treatment.

Communication Barriers

Jail sources revealed that language barriers contributed to Li Jiaki's distress, as local administrative officials and other inmates could not understand him. This communication gap likely exacerbated his frustration. He had consumed curd and beaten rice in the evening and spent most of the day sleeping after breakfast. Inmates noticed him crying during the day. When jail guards checked on him twice, using gestures, he indicated that he had eaten.

Arrest and Charges

Li Jiaki was arrested without a visa near Lakshmi Chowk by Brahmpura police station on Wednesday evening. An FIR was filed under charges of unauthorized entry into India. On Thursday afternoon, he was presented in court and subsequently sent to judicial custody. Originally from Dazhong village in the Kaingshan County city of Shandong Province, China, Li Jiaki entered India via Nepal. The police seized his Chinese passport, which lacked an Indian visa. He had arrived in Nepal from China on June 1 and traveled to Muzaffarpur by bus from Birgunj.

Items Seized

The police confiscated several items from Li Jiaki, including three small stone statues, three peculiar stone fragments, and a mobile phone with a Chinese SIM card. Additionally, they found nine 100-yuan notes, two 20-yuan notes, eight 10-yuan notes, two 5-yuan notes, a one-yuan note, and a one-yuan coin. He also had 1175 Nepali rupees and 8630 Indian rupees in his possession. A map of China and a Chinese identity card were also recovered.

Official Statement

Subhash Mukhiya, the officer in charge of Brahmpura police station, confirmed the arrest and detailed the items found with Li Jiaki.
