A MAN jailed for murdering his partner's two-year-old daughter has been killed in Long Lartin prison.

Subhan Anwar was serving a minimum of 23 years after being convicted of the murder of Sanam Navsarka in Huddersfield in February 2009.

The Ministry of Justice confirmed Anwar died at the maximum security prison in South Littleton yesterday (Thursday) and two other prisoners had been arrested.

It is understood Anwar had been held hostage in a cell before he was killed.

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

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

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