iPod, FM radio, home-made non-veg food: Delhi gangster Neeraj Bawana's list of demands to 'maintain sanity' in Tihar Jail
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Neeraj Bawana, who was Delhi’s most wanted gangster until his arrest in April 2015, has sent a list of demands to the Superintendent of Tihar Jail, which he says are essential for him to “pass time and maintain sanity” in the prison.
The demands include an iPod, a FM radio and home-made food, preferably non-vegetarian, according to a Hindustan Times report.
The report further quoted a jail official saying that the gangster has been conveyed that such items were not allowed in the jail.
Bawana has also been told that he can listen to music through the prison's in-house radio service, which is run by the inmates of Tihar Jail.
Unlike thousands of other prisoners who share barracks in the Tihar Jail, Bawana and two other prisoners -- underworld don Chhota Rajan and gangster-turned-politician Mohammad Shahabuddin -- have been lodged in separate cells.
Neeraj Bawana, a feared criminal involved in more than 40 cases of murder and attempt to murder and extortion, was arrested in April 2015.
27-year-old Bawana, whose real name is Neeraj Sehrawat, was a "ghostly figure" for police as neither he nor those around him used mobile phones to avoid tracking. He used Internet-based communication system and camouflaged his location.
Bawana was arrested several times earlier, including in 2012 when he had demanded Rs 50 lakh from Satinder, the then MLA from Narela constituency. He had jumped parole in 2013. Bawana had become an enigma for police as he was giving them a slip though around 35 of his gang members were caught.
Bawana claimed the top spot of Delhi's underworld after his friend-turned foe Neetu Daboda, the then reigning don of Delhi, was killed in an encounter by Delhi Police on October 26, 2013. He jumped parole after Daboda's death.
