A Chinese man, accused of entering India illegally, died on Tuesday after he allegedly made a suicide attempt at a jail in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district, officials said.

Li Jiaqi of China's Shandong province was arrested on June 6 near Laxmi Chowk in the Brahmapura police station area for not having valid travel documents, including visa. A map of China, a mobile phone and currencies of China, Nepal and India were found in his possession, they said.
