New Delhi: An undertrial prisoner has alleged that two inmates sexually abused him inside Tihar jail and a case has been registered in this regard following a court direction, police said today.
The 32-year-old victim, who is lodged in Tihar jail number 5, claimed that he had an argument with a jail official in May. He alleged that an inmate and the official demanded money from him and when he refused, he was threatened.
The victim was taken to a barrack, undressed and beaten up. He was also sexually abused by the male inmates, he alleged.
The incident came to light when he was produced in a court where he levelled these allegations. On the directions of the court, police conducted medical examination.
