Race hate killer Imran Shahid has been left a "broken man" by brutal prison beating
The thug is holed up in an isolation cell because he can no longer protect himself from fellow cons.
Insiders say there is a hospital bed in his cell and Shahid, nicknamed Baldy, “shuffles about like a pensioner”.
A source said: “He’s in there for his own protection because he’s a broken man – the lads who attacked him did a proper job on him.
“Basically, Baldy cannot defend himself any more.”
Shahid, who is serving life for the abduction and murder of 15-year-old Kriss Donald, almost died when a mob laid into him in Kilmarnock jail in February.
Doctors said he only survived because of his “extreme muscular build”.
The monster swore to take revenge on his attackers. But insiders say that’s just talk and he is a shadow of his former self.
A source at Glenochil jail in Clackmannanshire said: “He’s in the digger, which is where they put people who are being punished or are targets.
“It’s closed off from the rest of the prison so none of the other inmates can get near.
“If he was put back into a mainstream wing, he’d be torn to pieces.”
Two weeks ago, convicted killer William Crawford, 25, admitted battering Shahid in the gym at Kilmarnock jail.
Shahid, 36, suffered a fractured jaw and cheek and spinal injuries. He was later moved to Glenochil.
Crawford will be sentenced next month.
Shahid is serving a minimum of 25 years for leading a gang who killed Kriss after snatching him off the street in Glasgow’s southside in 2004.
