Former Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain, who is currently incarcerated, recently expressed his feelings of depression and loneliness. The Tihar prison administration responded on Monday by announcing that it would seek the advice of a physiologist and, if necessary, provide the AAP leader with the necessary treatment.

After mentioning that he was feeling down and lonely, Jain visited a physiologist within the jail clinic, who advised him to be near others and engage in social activities, they said.

“If he or any inmate in suffering from depression, they should be given proper attention. In this case, if Jain is battling depression, we will seek help of another physiologist to understand and analyse his present state of mind and, in case, he is found to be suffering from depression, we will arrange for the necessary treatment as per the suggestion of the physiologist concerned,” a senior jail official said.

The superintendent of jail number 7 has been given a show-cause notice by the Tihar Prison administration for moving two prisoners into the cell where Jain is being held, officials said on Monday.

Jain had requested two inmates be housed with him in an appeal to the jail administration because he was lonely and sad, they claimed.

The superintendent transferred the inmates without informing or discussing the matter with the administration, a senior official said.

When the jail administration came to know about it, a show cause notice was issued to the officer who then transferred the inmates back to their original place, he said.

“A show cause notice has been issued to the superintendent of jail no 7 of Tihar Jail by Director General Sanjay Beniwal seeking an explanation for transferring the inmates to the former Delhi minister’s cell without following certain guidelines and for not informing the jail administration before taking the step,” the official said.

Jain was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on May 31, 2022 in connection with a money laundering case.
