Satyendar Jain’s massage videos leaked before the elections

Satyendar Jain, who is currently lodged in Tihar Jail over his alleged involvement in a money laundering case, is under scanner for getting lavish treatment inside prison. On November 19, a video went viral on social media showing VIP treatment being meted out to Jain. Jain was seen receiving foot and head massages. In a bizarre defence of Jain getting a foot massage, Manish Sisodia claimed that Jain was taking physiotherapy for a ‘spine injury.’

Later on, it was revealed that the masseur of jailed Delhi Minister Satyendra Jain, whose videos of getting massages went viral, has been identified as one rape accused named Rinku, and not a physiotherapist.

The masseur providing massage to Satyendar Jain is a prisoner Rinku. He’s a prisoner in a rape case, charged under Section 6 of the POCSO Act & 376, 506 & 509 of IPC.

Multiple videos were leaked over social media from time to time showing Jain eating lavish food, getting massages and interacting with jail officials and other inmates. On December 2, it was revealed that the minister misused his powers and violated the prison rules.

As per reports, an Inquiry Committee was led by the Principal Secretaries of the Home and Law Ministries and the Secretary of the Directorate of Vigilance to probe the violation of the rules of Tihar jail. It found that the AAP Minister ‘misused his official position and authority in cahoots with the prison authorities.

According to the Committee, five inmates, namely Dilip Kumar, Sonu Singh, Manish, Rinku and Afsar Ali, were coerced by the Jail munshi, the warden and the superintendent to provide ‘special services’ to Satyendar Jain.

Both Rinku and Manish are being tried under the Prevention of Child Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, while Afsar and Singh are being jailed for not paying maintenance to their respective wives.
