New Delhi: Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh on Wednesday had
a stream of visitors, including his wife Pankaja and actor-
turned politician Jaya Prada, at the Tihar jail, where he was
lodged yesterday after he was sent to 14-day judicial custody
by a Delhi court in the 2008 cash-for-vote scam.
"He (Singh) had the normal jail breakfast and food today,"
Tihar Prisons Deputy Inspector General (DIG) R N Sharma said.

The jail food comprises roti, vegetables, pulses, tea and
bread.

Singh was also visited by his wife Pankaja and his younger
brother at around 10 AM while Lok Sabha MP Jaya Prada and few
other associates met the former Samajwadi Party leader at
about 12.30 PM.

"Singh also attended the routine roll call at the jail,"
Sharma said.
55-year-old Singh has been lodged in a 15X10 feet cell in
jail number three which also houses former Jharkhand Chief
Minister Madhu Koda who was arrested in a multi-crore money
laundering case.

Amar Singh is the fifth MP to be lodged inside Tihar
Prisons after 2G scam accused Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi and
former telecom minister A Raja, sacked CWG OC chairman Suresh
Kalmadi and Koda.

Singh has a `single-occupancy` cell which has a television
set.

Jail number three also houses Lalit Bhanot and V K Verma,
both arrested for their alleged involvement in the CWG scam
and Surendra Pipara, Hari Nair, Sharad Kumar, Sanjay Chandra,
Vinod Goenka and Karim Morani all arrested in 2G spectrum
case.
