Former deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Chhagan Bhujbal has been lodged in Barrack No.12 of Mumbai’s Arthur Road jail.
Ironically, it’s the same barrack of which Bhujbal had approved construction of in 2008 when he was Maharashtra’s Public Works Department (PWD) minister.
Inside the jail Bhujbal seems to have developed a close bond with former media baron Peter Mukerjea, who is one of the prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case.
The two have been seen sharing home made food that Mukerjea is given in jail every day.
Bhujbal, who is in jail in connection with a money-laundering case, is also sharing his barrack with another NCP leader Ramesh Kadam.
Kadam, in turn, is in jail after being an accused in a multi-crore corporation scam.
The barrack was divided into various cells in 2012 soon after 26/11 terrorist Ajmal Kasab was hanged. What is more, Bhujbal has been put in a cell which is in the ‘most secure zone’ of the barrack.
