A Delhi court on Monday asked the Tihar Jail Superintendent to personally appear before it and sought an explanation as to why medical facilities are not being provided to suspended Haryana cadre IPS RK Sharma who is facing trial in Shivani Bhatnagar murder case.

Taking cognizance of the oral complaint of Sharma that authorities at jail number one of Tihar, despite his illness, are denying basic medical facilities to him, Additional Sessions Judge Rajinder Kumar issued summon against the Superintendent for July 5, the next date of hearing.

Sharma, who was earlier granted bail by the Delhi High Court for undergoing corrective surgery of his spinal ailment, reacted sharply when ASJ Kumar, according to the report of the jail authorities, told him that he was availing all the requisite medical facilities.

"No sir, nothing is provided to me," said Sharma seeking court's intervention.

To this, the court issued summons saying "all things would become clear, let him appear and personally explain the situation."

Sharma along with five others namely namely -- Pradeep Sharma, Satya Prakash, Ved Prakash Sharma, Ved alias Kalu, Sri Bhagwan -- are facing trial in the scribe's murder case, who was found murdered at her east Delhi apartment on January 23, 1999.
