Haryana Jail Minister Krishan Lal Panwar said, “Gurmeet Singh is being treated like any other inmate within the jail campus. No special privileges are being provided to him.”

On Tuesday morning, Rahul Jain, a convict out on bail, told the media that due to Gurmeet Singh movement of other inmates has been restricted heavily.

“We only get 20 minutes to meet visitors, While Gurmeet Singh spends at least two hours with the visitors. He also enjoys special food. Food comes for him everyday from outside in huge tiffin box,” said Rahul.

The Rohtak jail inmate out on bail also said, "Authorities say that Baba is in the jail but no one has seen him. We are not allowed to go where Baba is kept."  He also claimed that all inmated are locked up whenever Gurmeet Singh is out of his cell.

However, rubbishing Rahul’s claim the jail minister said, “There is lot of distance between the barracks. They cannot even interact with him so they are saying it like this.”

He added, “Almost every week a judicial officer carries out surprise check in the jail campus. Nothing adverse have been reported so far. All claims are of special treatment are baseless.”
