A Raja, Kalmadi welcome New Year in Tihar Jail
New Delhi: Disgraced politicians A Raja and Suresh Kalmadi welcomed 2012 in Tihar Jail with a special lunch: paneer, kheer, halwa and more.
The two VIP prisoners spoke to their families over telephone briefly, greeted fellow prisoners and accepted sweets from officials.
Only well behaved prisoners are allowed to use the phone.
The prisoners also got special food to mark New Year: vegetable curry with paneer, kheer, halwa, puri, parathas and pulao.
Raja has been lodged there since February 2011 for his alleged role in the 2G spectrum scam. Kalmadi was arrested in April last year for alleged irregularities in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
Tihar Jail houses more than 12,000 prisoners.
