New Delhi: Political reactions have begun to pour in after CNN-IBN's special investigation team revealed how ABVP activist Shashiranjan Akela, prime accused in Professor Sabharwal's murder case, was being well looked after in Ujjain Central Jail.
The Minister of State for Home, Nagendra Singh, has reacted saying that action will taken against jail authorities if that is indeed the case.
"No person should get any special facility in jail. As a human being, they should be given humanly treatment and nothing beyond that," Singh said.
"If the treatment, as you have brought into my notice, is being given, I will check up with the authorities. If it's a fact, we will take action against them," he added.
When CNN-IBN's team went to Ujjain Central Jail to meet Akela — one of the six persons that the CID has charged with the professor’s murder — they were easily allowed inside the jail.
Normally, it is illegal to meet a prisoner, but an exception is made in the case of Akela, who is treated as a VIP.
