Mumbai: Former Maharashtra PWD Minister and NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal on Wednesday said he would take legal action against the activist Anjali Damania for making false allegations that he was getting illegal facilities in the
Arthur Road jail here.

Bhujbal and his nephew Sameer Bhujbal are in jail after the Enforcement Directorate arrested them in 2016 in
money laundering cases.

Prison authorities had said on Tuesday that they had ordered inquiry upon Damania's complaint that Bhujbals were getting TV, non-vegetarian food in the jail and they could even use mobile phone.

Chhagan Bhujbal said in his statement, issued from the prison on Wednesday, that these allegations were baseless, and Damania only wanted to malign their image and influence the judicial process.

The prison has jammers and CCTV cameras, and there was no question of using a mobile phone, he said.
