On Wednesday, a terror accused moved Delhi Court alleging that other inmates at Tihar Jail had beaten him up, and he was forced to chant Jai Shri Ram. He sought directions to the superintendent to look into the case.
Before the Court, his counsel submitted that the petitioner( Rashid Zafar) was forced to chant religious slogans by inmates of other faith who roughed him up. According to the counsel, Zafar told his father about the incident in a telephonic phone call.
The Court was informed that Zafar was lodged at Tihar Central Jail and requested the Court to direct the Jail Superintendent to look into the matter and take appropriate action against the perpetrators.
Rashid Zafar was arrested in 2018 in a joint operation of Delhi Police Special Cell, the NIA, and UP ATS, who had raided various places to arrest Zafar.
