State can’t provide special privileges to anyone: Delhi Court dismisses Satyendra Jain plea for food in jail as per religious beliefs

The judge noted that as per jail rules, it is apparent that inmates who observe religious fast may be provided extra articles of food like fruit/potatoes, as may be allowed by the orders of the government.

However, in the present case, there is no request placed on record by Jain showing his desire to keep fast nor any order of DG, Prison or of any authority permitting him to keep religious fast, the Court said.

“Therefore, as per DPR 2018, there was no order to the effect of providing the applicant with fruits/vegetables, on account of his religious fast by Tihar Jail Administration,” the judge said.
