Immediately after the new CCTV footage purportedly showing Satyendar Jain having a conversation with Jail Superintendent Ajit Kumar surfaced on Saturday, the BJP hit out at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for providing “VVIP” treatment to the jailed AAP minister in Tihar jail.
Reacting to the latest video footage, BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla said in a tweet, “Yet another video of Tihar put out by media! This time the Satyendra ka Darbaar has Jail Superintendent who has now been suspended ! After maalish by child rapist & Nawabi meal now this! This is corruption therapy of AAP but Kejriwal ji defends this! Will he sack SJ now?”

The video sourced from Tihar jail showed Jain lying on his bed and Ajit Kumar( jail official) is seated on a chair nearby while the pair apparently seem to be having a conversation. Kumar was suspended as Tihar Jail Superintendent on November 14 for allegedly providing special treatment to the Delhi minister.
The BJP national spokesperson took a dig at the AAP for covering and supporting the activities carried out in the jail.
“First, Satyendar Jain was seen getting a massage from a child rapist which the AAP party termed as physiotherapy, then a video of the jailed minister having an elaborate meal, and now Jain holding a discussion session with a suspended superintendent. Why is Arvind Kejriwal still supporting all this?,” Poonawalla said.
Poonawalla slammed AAP over the new video and said it was ‘AAP ka darbar of Brashtachar’. “It is the third video in the series, first AAP made a spa in Tihar where Satyendar Jain got a maalish from a child rapist and AAP labeled it as physiotherapy,” Poonawalla said. He also highlighted that the jailed minister was served a 5-course meal but claimed he was being starved.
“Now a video shows how he was allowed to hold a darbar inside the jail. Why Jain was kept as a minister despite getting no relief from the courts …..so that he can get VIP maalish?,” he added.
The new CCTV footage came after the Tihar Jail superintendent was suspended for allegedly providing special treatment to jailed Jain.
Earlier on November 23, Jain had filed an application in a Delhi court seeking direction to restrain all media organisations from airing, broadcasting or publishing any CCTV clip related to him.
The plea stated that all the national media are regularly running CCTV footage of Satyendar Jain. A parallel media trial is going against him, despite the present matter being examined by this court, argued senior advocate Rahul Mehra who appeared for Jain.
