New Delhi, Apr 21: Five top honchos of telecom firms, who were sent to Tihar jail yesterday in connection with the 2G spectrum allocation scam, spent their night like others prisoner as they were not provided any special treatment.


In contrast to their lavish lifestyle, all the five spent their night in a 90 square feet Tihar prison cell.

Swan Telecom Director Vinod Goenka, Unitech Wireless (Tamil Nadu) Ltd Managing Director Sanjay Chandra, and three top officials of Reliance ADA Group -- Gautam Doshi, Surendra Pipara and Hari Nair were sent to the jail last evening.

"They had the usual prison food -- dal, roti, sabzi and chawal -- and after that they were sent to their respective cells. They share cells with other inmates as the jail is already overcrowded. They slept on the floor as their co-inmates do," a jail official said.

All the five woke up early in the morning and were present for the head count. PTI
