" If the applicant feels any grievance, he shall take necessary steps by invoking the indulgence of visiting judge of Central Jail no. 2, the court said."
New Delhi, July 25 - A court here refused to take any action on a plea filed by Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yasin Bhatkal seeking proper food in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, saying that he is a high security prisoner and is under regular vigil.

Since applicant (Bhatkal) is a high security inmate, in view of this, his being taken out of cell or his lodging is being regulated, therefore, to my view no action is required at this stage, said Additional Sessions Judge Raj Kapoor.

The court order came after taking note of the report filed by Tihar Jail officials.

However, the court observed that for the purpose of grievance redressal, a visiting judge has been appointed by the district and sessions judge.

If the applicant feels any grievance, he shall take necessary steps by invoking the indulgence of visiting judge of Central Jail no. 2, the court said.

The application filed by Bhatkal's counsel M.S. Khan said that his client was observing the day-long Ramadan fast but was not being provided timely and proper food.
