Satyendar Jain, who was arrested last year has been in high-security jail. On May 11, he had written a letter and requested the prison administration to lodge him with more inmates in a letter.
He cited depression & need for more social interactions.
In the letter, he said that he was feeling depressed and low because of loneliness.
In the letter, he also mentioned two names.
After this, two prisoners were shifted to the former minister’s cell by the Superintendent of jail no 7.
Soon the administration came to know about it, they were immediately shifted back to their respective cells.
