LAHORE: Raymond Davis, held in jail for the alleged murder of two Pakistanis in Lahore reportedly ended his hunger strike on Wednesday.

Davis, whose menu includes boiled rice and chicken four days a week, went on a hunger strike on Tuesday to protest prison conditions, sources informed Express 24/7. However, a US embassy spokesperson denied reports of the hunger strike, terming them baseless.

Members of banned organisations who were earlier kept with Davis in the high security zone, have reportedly been shifted out leaving Davis alone in the compound. Only police officers who have special permission from authorities are allowed to enter the high security compound.

It has also been learned by Express 24/7 that the US consulate staff visits Davis on a daily basis. The consulate has requested transferring Davis from the Kot Lakhpat Jail to Rawalpindi’s Adiyala jail.
