A Nepali man died in the Jinjang lock-up in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, five days after he was remanded, an NGO said.

In a statement, Eliminating Deaths and Abuse in Custody (Edict), said Dhan Bahdur, 26, was supposed to be held under remand from May 27 to June 30. However, he was recorded dead at 8.20am on Sunday by a paramedic from the Selayang Hospital.

Edict said the body was not viewed by the coroner at the place of death, breaching the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC).
