A remand prisoner died at a district hospital in Kerala’s Palakkad on Thusrday after allegedly consuming sanitiser which he confused with alcohol, officials said.

Ramankutty, who was put in the prison as a remand prisoner was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday after he fell unconscious inside the jail.

"We suspect that he drank a bottle of sanitiser which are manufactured in the jail premises (by the prisoners) as per the instructions of the state government," a senior jail official told PTI.

He was fine on Tuesday and was also in attendance for the roll call on Wednesday but fell unconscious at around 10:30 am, said officials.

Jail authorities use Isopropyl alcohol as the main content of the hand sanitiser.

Police stated they have filed a case and the accurate reason of death will come to light only after a post-mortem is performed.
