New Delhi, Apr 3 (ANI): Reacting to reports that VIP facilities were being provided to former Punjab Minister Bibi Jagir Kaur, currently lodged in Theh Kanjla Jail in Kapurthala in connection with the abduction case of her daughter, Congress Party on Tuesday expressed hope that the judiciary would take cognizance of these reports and initiate appropriate action under the laws.
"Well, there are reports that have been published in various newspapers with regard to the very special treatment, which is sought to be given to a former minister who has been convicted in Punjab. We do hope that the judiciary would take cognizance of these reports and initiate appropriate action under the laws," said Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari.
According to certain media reports, the jail authorities had permitted the installation of a LED screen and satellite connection for Kaur in the prison.
Kaur was last week sent to jail after she was sentenced to five years imprisonment by a CBI court for conspiring in forcible abortion and abduction in connection with the mysterious death of her teenaged daughter Harpreet Kaur 12 years ago.
A special court on March 30 had convicted Bibi Jagir Kaur for conspiring in forcible abduction, kidnapping and wrongful confinement in the killing of her daughter Harpreet Kaur.
Jagir Kaur was, however, acquitted from the charges of murder by the court in Patiala. (ANI)
