New Delhi, India, November 24: The Special Court stayed the order reserved on a petition brought by Delhi Minister Satyender Jain, who was detained in Delhi Prisons for six months, to keep the order reserved and fixed it for publication tomorrow after hearing the lengthy arguments.Since hearing the lengthy arguments, Tihar Jail Authority reported in its response that our administration provides a balanced and nutritious diet to all prisoners detained in Delhi Prisons uniformly, without discrimination based on race, creed There are certain timedays, according to common belief, during which a person fasts, as in Navratras and/or Ramzan.According to Tihar, the guidelines provide a religious fast and not a fast undertaken by an individual according to his own choiceliking, according to the court.The court also requested a report from Tihar on Wednesday regarding whether Satyendar Kumar Jain was on a religious fast during the previous 5-6 months, whether he was on a religious fast, and whether the diet provided to him has been reduced during the past 10-12 days, according to Tihar's reply.He is only receiving salad (cucumber, tomato, etc.)from the jail canteen on a pay basis.Through the prison canteen, the selling of these items is permitted.It is important to note that any prisoner held in the prison on a payment basis can purchase these items through their Prisoner Property Account.As the prison department provides a nutritional and balanced diet to all prisoners, Tihar said, it is also wrong to expect the prison system to provide special attention to a prisoner, Tihar said. I can't even get basic food in prison, does that take away from my civil rights, he said.Advocate Mehra argues that Tihar has burgeoned into a massage parlour, saying it has been a massage parlour.Because of a fall inside the jail, someone was just holding my hand.I'm a Jain and have only eaten after going to the temple, so I'm on fast here for the rest of my life. During the day, Satyendar's counsel prayed to withdraw the offer and directed the media not to broadcast any video of Satinder Jain's CCTV footage.We're moving to the highest court, he said.Special Judge Vikas Dhull accepts their request to withdraw it.Rahul Mehra denied ED charges of being privileged treatment in Tihar Jail, saying, What privilege is they talking about? I am not even getting adequate meals.What is the subject of their discussion?If an undertrial is pressing his hand and feet, no prison rule can be violated.He argued earlier that they (agencies) have already put me on the gallows.Moreover, Ajmal Kasab and I both enjoyed a free and fair trial. Mehra told the court that several departments are probing into how Tihar Jail was exploited to benefit Satyendar Jain.Satyendar Jain's counsel obtained the video and sent it to Special court on Saturday, bringing a charge of contempt against the Enforcement Directorate.Despite the court's promise, the Jain legal team claims that the ED has leaked the CCTV footage.
