New Delhi, Nov 23, 2022: A day after jailed Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain complained in court about not getting adequate food and a 28-kg weight loss, more CCTV footage from Tihar Jail has emerged.
The new CCTV footage showing him eating salad, fruit and food from plastic containers comes after another video of Jain receiving massages in his prison cell went viral.
The footage, showing three days in September and October effectively negates the claims that the minister is not getting proper food in prison, sources in Tihar Jail said today. The sources also claimed that the minister had not lost 28 kg but had in fact “gained 8 kg” in jail.
Earlier videos showing the minister receiving massages in his prison cell had led to a fierce political row between Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prior to the civic elections.
AAP minister Satyendar Jain had been arrested in a money laundering case and charged with corruption. He was denied bail last week.
