Two prisoners are in police custody after a man who was jailed for torturing and murdering his partner's 2-year-old daughter, was found dead.
Subhan Anwar was jailed for a minimum of 23 years in 2009 for the murder of Sanam Navsarka.
It s understood he was held hostage in a cell at HMP Long Lartin before he was killed.
His partner Zahbeena Navsarka was cleared of her daughter's murder but found guilty of manslaughter and jailed for nine years.
A Prison Service spokeswoman 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.''
During the couple's trial the court heard Sanam's tiny hand prints and bloodstains were found inside cupboards at the home in Huddersfield and also at a former property in Batley
Both her thigh bones had been fractured, causing fatty deposits to enter her bloodstream and resulting in her death, and she had fractures to both her arms.
