His remand has been extended by the magistrate for another 14 days. Initially he was not allowed to meet people and was not given any assistance which for a person with nearly 90 percent disability was worse than physical torture.

Now he is in better situation. According to his lawyer, the jail authorities have assigned two persons to assist him. His medicines are being regularly administered to him and his lawyer has access to him in the jail.
