Kasab demands basmati rice in prison

September 07, 2009 14:23 IST

After 'mutton biriyani', 26/11 Mumbai terror attack accused Ajmal Kasab now wants 'basmati' rice served to him in jail.

Kasab wants spicy food and 'basmati' rice for himself and if he does not get dish of his choice he gets furious and abuses the staff of the Arthur road central prison, where he is lodged.

Last week, he had demanded 'basmati' rice and before that wanted 'mutton biriyani', Jail Superintendent Rajendra Dhamne said today.

"Kasab's mood swings still continue and time and again we reprimand him," he said.

He has thrown tantrums in jail in last few days by refusing to eat food, not dressing in time to come to the court and abusing the staff who attend on him, the official said.

The jail authorities have complained to the special court, hearing the 26/11 terror attack case, about misbehaviour of Kasab who is facing the trial along with two Indians for killing 166 persons.

All prisoners are given food as prescribed in the jail manual, Dhamne said.
