Tihar official suspended over Satyendar Jain row | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The superintendent of Tihar Jail number 7 has been suspended after a preliminary enquiry revealed that he had allegedly committed irregularities while Delhi minister Satyendar Jain was lodged in the prison and provided special treatment.
The Enforcement Directorate had earlier stated in an affidavit in court that Jain was given VIP treatment in prison and that the superintendent used to visit him as well. The agency claimed that Jain’s wife was given access to his cell and spent more than the allowed time. The ED had also provided the CCTV footage to the court.
A letter signed by chief secretary Naresh Kumar stated, “Ajit Kumar, a Danics official… is hereby placed under suspension with immediate effect.”
