Jail guard in workers abduction shot dead

Jupakkal was on board a motorcycle when gunmen aboard another motorcycle opened fire on him. He sustained three gunshot wounds and died on the spot, Kasim said.

Jupakkal had been suspended after 11 prisoners bolted the provincial jail in Patikul town on Jan. 13 with his companion Raden Abu. Abu was tagged as a prime suspect in the kidnapping of three ICRC workers - Swiss national Andreas Notter, Italian Eugenio Vagni and Filipino Mary Jean Lacaba - who inspected a water and sanitation project at the prison.

Jupakkal underwent investigation after ICRC's abduction, but it as not clear whether his death was related to the case.

The ICRC hostages were later handed over the Al-Qaida-linked Abu Sayyaf group and have remained in captive for almost 50 days.
