New Delhi: A new twist came to fore in the massaging case of Satyendar Jain, a minister in the Delhi government lodged in Tihar Jail. Jail sources say that the person massaging the minister is accused of rape. The prisoner who massaged Satyendar Jain is Rinku’s son Tarachand. He is a prisoner in a rape case, charged under section 6 of POCSO and sections 376, 506 and 509 of the IPC.

A video of Aam Aadmi Party leader Satyendar Jain had surfaced from Delhi’s Tihar Jail. In this purported video, Satyendar Jain is seen getting a foot massage. It is clearly visible in the video that he is lying on a bed very comfortably. Massage is being done in their hands and feet.

The videos, dated September 13, 14 and 21, are the subject of a fierce row between the AAP and the BJP in the run-up to the Delhi civic elections next month.

Let us tell you that the BJP on Saturday questioned the silence of Aam Aadmi Party convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the videos in which Tihar Jail minister Satyendar Jain is allegedly seen getting massages and welcoming visitors in the jail cell. Citing the video that went viral on social media, the BJP said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has become a ‘spa and massage party’. He challenged Kejriwal to explain Jain’s conduct in jail.

Even on Monday, Arvind Kejriwal strongly refuted the BJP’s allegation of VIP treatment to his minister, sticking to the “physiotherapy, not massage” argument.

“They are calling it a massage and VIP treatment, but it’s merely physiotherapy,” Mr Kejriwal told reporters on the sidelines of his campaign in Gujarat’s Vadodra.

Mr Jain has been in jail since June. A Delhi court denied his bail request last week.
