New Delhi: Tihar jail authorities on Monday told a Special CBI court the contentions put forth by AgustaWestland “middleman” Christian Michel over a loss of 16 kilos in jail are false. In the last hearing, Special CBI judge Arvind Kumar had directed jail authorities to file a reply on the allegations levelled by Michel.
The Dubai-based businessman had stated he is being fed only boiled vegetables in jail, as a result of which he lost 16 kg. Appearing before the court today, jail authorities, however, contended Michel has lost only 1.2 kg since he was lodged in jail. Denying the allegations he is being fed only boiled vegetables, the jail said, “Non-veg food is not allowed as per jail rules. But he can buy fruits and cottage cheese from the canteen.”
