Dreaded gangster Prem Prakash Singh alias Munna Bajrangi was shot dead inside the district jail here today, the police said.
He was brought here from Jhansi jail yesterday and was to be produced in a local court today in a case for demanding extortion money from BJP MLA Lokesh Dixit.
According to ADG Prision Chandraprakash, four jail personnel, including the deputy jailor, have been suspended following the incident.
The gangster's wife had recently in a press conference alleged that conspiracies were being hatched to kill her husband.
