BJP leaders have started sharing CCTV footage of Satyendar Jain's prison cell, which depicts him eating and getting massages, ahead of elections in Gujarat and the MCD.
AAP convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, defended Satyendar Jain on Thursday, claiming that his treatment in jail had been in accordance with the law despite the BJP’s near-daily charges that he was receiving special privileges while awaiting trial.

On the basis of a CBI FIR against him from 2017, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a money laundering case against Satyendar Jain, leading to his detention earlier this year.
In addition, Mr. Shah discussed the Thursday arrest of the AAP politician, criticising the Arvind Kejriwal administration for its “shamelessness” in continuing to hold him in office as a minister and asserting that such incidents are “unusual” in public life.
“Along with being arrested, I also quit my job as a preacher. Later, we argued in front of the judge. Approach the court if you feel there is an injustice against you. You can’t act so brazenly, “Speaking at a gathering in Delhi, Amit Shah.
