New Delhi, November 26
A fresh video showing Delhi minister and AAP leader Satyendar Jain meeting a superintendent of the Tihar jail in his prison cell emerged on Saturday.
Jain, who is in the eye of a political storm over leaked videos purportedly showing him getting massages and other special facilities in the jail, has urged a court here to put a stop on CCTV camera footage of his cell being "leaked" to the media.
The purported video of the AAP leader meeting the jail superintendent was shared on social media by some BJP leaders.
"Have this new video of honest minister Jain. Jail superintendent's attendance in the court of jail minister at 8 pm," Delhi BJP media cell head Harish Khurana tweeted and shared the CCTV camera footage.
Earlier this month, a Tihar jail superintendent was suspended for alleged involvement in providing "special treatment" to Jain, who is in prison since May 31 in a money-laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Sources had said that the suspended officer, Ajit Kumar, was the superintendent of jail number 7 in the prison complex.
Jain could be seen in earlier purported videos getting back and foot massages in his cell, reading some documents and talking to visitors while lying on a bed. Mineral water bottles and a remote are also seen. In one video, he was seen getting a head massage while sitting on a chair.
BJP leaders had alleged that he was getting massages from a rape accused. It was also alleged by them that Jain was getting facilities in the jail against rules.
The AAP had earlier said the BJP is trying to malign the image of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal ahead of the December 4 Municipal Corporation of Delhi polls as it has no real issues to talk about.
On the massage videos, the Kejriwal-led party has said that Jain was receiving physiotherapy in the jail.
