“The alleged rapist was sworn at and jeered by other inmates from the moment he was put in a van to transport them to the jail from the court. The accused sought help of the security guards for protection," said the source.
The source added, "As it happens inside jails, a rapist is hated and looked down upon as filth by other inmates charged with offences including murder."
On his arrival, as per rule, Singh was asked to provide his identity particulars and was examined by a doctor. The accused kept a low profile, his gaze fixed on the ground and chose not to interact with other inmates, said the source.
Singh will attend a test identification parade on Thursday at the sub-jail that will be conducted by a metropolitan magistrate.
