New Delhi: On Saturday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) released an old video of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) minister Satyendar Jain receiving a massage in a Tihar jail cell. The video comes just several days after the Superintendent of Tihar Jail, Ajit Kumar, was suspended for alleged VIP treatment of the minister.

BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya tweeted the video and said, "Arvind Kejriwal has reduced Tihar to a massage parlour. His jailed minister Satyendra Jain would get a masseur, who would, in violation of all jail rules, indulge the inmate, because of his proximity to the Delhi CM. Delhi Govt manages Tihar. ये भ्रष्टाचारी राजनीति बदलने आए थे। (These corrupt people had come to change politics)."

Reportedly, it is an old video and the jail authorities have already taken action against concerned officers and jail staff members.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED), earlier alleged that Jain, who is arrested in connection with an alleged money laundering case, was being given VIP treatment inside the Tihar jail, including facilities such as head, back, and foot massages. The Delhi minister was arrested on May 30.

The probing agency also submitted evidence related to his ‘luxurious life’ in the prison to a court.

Additional Solicitor General (ASG) SV Raju, who was appearing for the ED, had said, “Unknown persons were giving massages and foot massages to Jain, even beyond curfew hours. He was given special food.”

The ASG further shared CCTV images with the court and further alleged that most of the time, Satyendar Jain was either in a hospital or in prison enjoying various facilities.

Slamming AAP by sharing another CCTV footage of Jain getting a foot massage, BJP’s Shehzad Poonawalla said, “VVIP treatment in jail! Can Kejriwal defend such a mantri? Should he not be sacked ? This shows true face of AAP!”

Responding to the allegations, Delhi Minister Manish and party leader Manish Sisodia said, "Satyendra Jain has had two operations for spine injury. The doctor has prescribed him regular physiotherapy. After Covid-19, there is a patch in his lungs which is not been cured yet. The very idea of making fun of a person's illness and the treatment being given to him is disgusting."
