Child killer ‘murdered’ in prison

LONDON: A child murderer has been killed in Worcestershire’s Long Lartin prison, the ministry of justice says.

Two prisoners are being held in police custody after the death of Subhan Anwar, who was jailed in 2009 for torturing and killing a two-year-old girl.

Anwar is understood to have been held hostage in his cell at the category A jail before he was killed.

Anwar was jailed for a minimum of 23 years for the murder of his partner’s daughter Sanam Navsarka.

His partner Zahbeena Navsarka was cleared of her daughter’s murder but found guilty of manslaughter and jailed for nine years.

Anwar and Navsarka, from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, were condemned for their cruel and selfish treatment of Sanam.

The violence inflicted on the youngster happened near the end of her life.

Her tiny hand prints and bloodstains were found inside cupboards at the home in Huddersfield and also at a former property in Batley, West Yorkshire.

Both her thigh bones had been fractured, causing fatty deposits to enter her bloodstream and resulting in her death, and she had fractures to both her arms.

A Prison Service spokeswoman said: “An incident at HMP Long Lartin on Thursday, Feb.14 resulted in the death of prisoner Subhan Anwar.

“Two prisoners are now in police custody and the matter is being investigated by police.”

A West Mercia police spokesman said: “West Mercia Police has launched a murder investigation after a 24-year-old man died in Long Lartin prison last night.
