Delhi rape suspect dies in jail, family suspects foul play – Sumnima Udas reports


One of the men accused of gang raping and fatally beating a woman on a New Delhi bus was found dead in his jail cell Monday.

Police say Ram Singh hanged himself. But his lawyer and parents claim he was murdered.

"There was no reason for him to commit suicide. There is some foul play," Singh's attorney V.K. Anand said.

Singh was housed in New Delhi's Tihar Prison. Last year, the prison recorded 18 deaths, including two suicides, according to CNN affiliate CNN-IBN.

CNN's Sumnima Udas reports on the latest in the story on "Early Start" this morning.
