SRINAGAR: Officials at a jail in the Indian-controlled part of Kashmir say a Pakistani prisoner has committed suicide.

Jail superintendent Harish Kotwal says Showkat Ali used a scarf to hang himself from the iron bars of a toilet window at the jail in Jammu city.

His body was found early Saturday.

Ali was arrested in 2011 after he crossed into Indian territory. Top prison official K. Rajendra says an inquiry has been ordered into Ali's death.

The Himalayan region of Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan, with both countries claiming it in its entirety.

The two countries share a porous border, and scores of Indian and Pakistani prisoners are languishing in each other's jails after being caught without the proper papers.
