Ghaziabad: Manveer Singh Tevatia, lodged in
Dasna jail here, has been shifted to a hi-tech security
barrack and no visitor is allowed to meet the farmer leader
whose fast-unto-death entered the second day on Monday.
Dasna Jail Superintendent Viresh Raj Sharma said even
Tevatia`s family members will not be allowed to meet him
during his fast, which is not allowed as per the jail manual.
Tevatia is on fast accusing the authorities of registering
false cases against him and has demanded withdrawal of all
such cases against him and other farmer leaders and immediate
halt to land acquisition in the state. He also wants that the
acquired land should be returned to the farmers.
Sharma said only the district magistrate, jail
superintendent and jail doctor and their representatives can
District Magistrate Shashi Bhushan Kumar Susheel came to
meet him yesterday with additional district magistrate and
city magistrate and his medical check up was performed. The
medical report said he was in good health.
Tevatia was arrested in July for allegedly inciting a
clash between farmers and policemen in Bhatta-Parsaul villages
in Greater Noida in which four people were killed.
