A KILLER who slashed prison guards has complained about life in jail on Facebook.

Victim Craig Wylde has slammed his attacker Kevan Thakrar for moaning about life behind bars on the social networking site, with his posts complaining about prison food, the sounds of workmen’s drills and hammers and not being allowed nail clippers in his cell.

Mr Wylde was stabbed in the arm by Thakrar as he worked as a prison guard in HMP Frankland in Durham in 2010.

The 32-year-old may never work again and now suffers from pain and flashbacks.

Two of his colleagues were also injured in the attack.

Iraqi war veteran Mr Wylde said: “He is a psychopath who is in prison for horrible crimes and shows no remorse.

“Then he assaulted a prison officer and is now moaning about his treatment. He deserves all he gets.”

He added Thakrar acts like a child and wants to be the centre of attention.

“If you put him in a cell with Sky TV, an ocean view and steak every night, he would complain,” he said.

Thakrar, 25, is serving a life sentence for murdering three men with a machine gun over a £10,000 drug debt.

He was jailed for life with a minimum tariff of 35 years.

In a plea to be released from a secure unit in HMP Manchester, formerly Strangeways, he wrote: “Since my arrival here, things have gone from bad to worse. A temporary partition is being rebuilt, meaning the sounds of drills and sledgehammers is a regular occurrence.”

In his letter on the Justice for Kev Facebook page, Thakrar added: “In my cell, I have nothing but a few legal papers and mail.

“No TV, radio, kettle, hair clippers, nail clippers or religious items.”

A spokesperson for the Prison Service said: “The high security estate holds some of the most difficult and disruptive prisoners who present a unique set of challenges for both prison management and staff.”
