A day after one of the men facing trial for his alleged involvement in the December 16 gangrape was shifted to a north Delhi hospital seeking treatment for recurrent high fever, his lawyer claimed that he was not only being subjected to assault but was also being ‘poisoned’ in Tihar Jail.

Sharma is currently hospitalised and is undergoing treatment at the Lok Nayak hospital after six days of treatment at west Delhi’s Deen Dayal Upadhyay (DDU) hospital.

A P Singh, his advocate, claimed Sharma was not getting proper treatment within the jail as the doctors were on strike.

Special Public Prosecutor Dayan Krishnan denied the claim and said the doctors were on strike only for a few hours.

On Sharma being poisoned Tihar jail spokesperson, Sunil Gupta, said: “All these allegations are baseless.”
