Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain will live like an ordinary prisoner in Delhi’s Tihar Jail after videos of him enjoying body massages in his cell surfaced on social media. Jain has been in jail since June this year, awaiting trial in a money laundering case.
Apart from that, all the privileges enjoyed by the imprisoned AAP minister are said to have been taken away. The table and chair that were visible in some of the viral videos have also been removed, sources said.
Jain has also been banned from entertaining visitors for violating jail rules. According to sources, they have decided to reduce his privileges in the last few days.
Earlier, several videos surfaced showing jailed Aam Aadmi Party chief Satyendar Jain getting a head and body massage in Delhi’s Tihar Jail on Saturday (December 17). Video Enforcement Directorate told the court that Jain is receiving VIP treatment in jail.
The Aam Aadmi Party defended the video saying the minister suffered from severe back problems and needed physiotherapy for it. This statement received a great reaction.
Meanwhile, Delhi’s Arvind Kejriwal accused the BJP of pressuring the media to spread propaganda against his party. Referring to the alleged videos of jailed minister Satyender Jain, the chief minister said the BJP had pressured the media to spread “propaganda against us”.
