‘Withdraw privileges of rape accused’

delhi Updated: May 11, 2013 00:35 IST

Tihar Jail officials have asked a fast track court to withdraw the visitation and telephone privileges of one of December 16 gang rape accused, Akshay Singh, for two weeks as punishment for allegedly misbehaving with prison officials and other inmates.

A letter to this effect was filed by the jail officials before additional sessions judge Yogesh Khanna, who had asked the prison authorities to inquire into Singh’s allegation of having been beaten up by some inmates and police officers.

Prison officials said Singh misbehaved with the wardens when they were escorting him for his medical examination.

“Akshay’s act is strictly against jail discipline and punishable as per Delhi Jail Manual. He may be punished accordingly,” the letter said.
