An earlier video showed the jail superintendent paying a visit to Jain and have a conversation with him. Another video showed Jain with some visitors.
A much earlier video had showed the Delhi minister getting massage allegedly from a rape accused. The video had created a row as the BJP accused the AAP-led Delhi government of ensuring special services to Jain. AAP leaders however refuted the allegation and said he was being given physiotherapy for health reasons.
The minister had also sought special ‘Jain’ food comprising dry fruits, fruits and other items which were rejected by the court. He has said that he offers prayers at a temple before having food and had requested access to the temple in the jail and special food.
Satyendar Jain is in prison in connection with an alleged money laundering case filed by the Enforcement Directorate.
