Indian Mujahideen operative Yasin Bhatkal and his aide Asadullah Akhtar moved a city court on Wednesday claiming there was a threat to their lives inside Tihar Jail where they are currently lodged.
They also complained of “animal-like” treatment by the jail authorities.
In an application filed before District and Sessions Judge I S Mehta, the duo asked the court to issue directions to the Director General of Tihar Jail to ensure their security and safety in the prison.
“The attitude and behaviour of the jail authorities towards the accused persons is abusive and they are being treated even worse than animals,” said the plea filed by their counsel.
