Jail your own minister: Kiran Bedi’s sarcasm on Satyendar Jain’s video

New Delhi: Delhi minister and AAP leader Satyendar Jain was arrested by the Enforcement Department (ED) in May under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). On the other hand, Kiran Bedi, former IGP (Prisons) of Delhi and former Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, said about the special treatment being meted out to Jain in jail that such lapses are due to the “prison administration system”. (This cannot be considered as the fault of the jail authorities)

It is well known that Kiran Bedi was earlier as Inspector General of Police (IGP) Jails. He said it is also natural that “jail authorities” hesitate to act against their own minister, even if he has gone to jail.

It is noteworthy that before Jain’s arrest, he was the jail minister in Delhi.

It is the fault of the prison administration… it reports to the political system (minister of state). How can the jail authorities act against their own minister unless the lieutenant governor of Delhi (VK Saxena) removes or suspends him? Bedi also said this.

Satyendar Jain was caught on video camera giving massage and foot massage to another inmate in Tihar Jail. On the suspension of Jail Superintendent Ajit Kumar for giving such facility to Satyendra Jain, Kiran Bedi again quipped, ‘It must have happened that the Jail Superintendent has videos of the entire jail. He won’t even know.
