New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal is being tortured inside the Tihar jail at the behest of the Central government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, AAP MP Sanjay Singh claimed on Saturday.

"Inside the jail, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is being tortured at the behest of the Government of India and PM Modi. Action is being taken to break his morale. As per the rule and as mentioned in the jail manual, the jail administration has been granted the right to let the people in jail meet the visitors face-to-face. In the case of Arvind Kejriwal, his wife is not allowed to meet him face-to-face,” he said.

"Today, the fight is to save democracy and the Constitution. I would request PM Modi and home minister Amit Shah not to take away the rights of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, which are guaranteed constitutionally, democratically, legally and under the prison rules. Don't try to be a dictator,” he added.

Arvind Kejriwal is currently in Tihar Jail under judicial custody. He was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate last month in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case.

Sanjay Singh claimed Sunita Kejriwal was told by the jail authorities that she could only meet him through a window. He claimed it was done to humiliate Arvind Kejriwal.

"When the wife of Arvind Kejriwal applied to meet him, she was told that you cannot meet him face-to-face but through a window. Why such inhuman behaviour... This inhuman act has been done just to humiliate and discourage the CM. I am saying with full responsibility that even the dreaded criminals are allowed to meet in the barrack, but a three-time CM of Delhi is allowed to meet his wife through a window having a glass in between," he added.

Sanjay Singh, who was in jail in connection with the Delhi excise policy case since October last year, got out on bail earlier this month.

Earlier this week, he claimed Tihar authorities threatened to block his family's visits over passing a message to AAP MLAs through his lawyers.

The BJP has demanded Arvind Kejriwal's resignation as the Delhi chief minister on moral grounds. The AAP says he will continue to work for Delhi from inside jail because hasn't been convicted in any case.
