Piyali & Subhojit’s jail menu

Calcutta, April 26: Roti, sabzi and daal for dinner, two biscuits and tea in the morning and afternoon, bread and 25 grams of gur (molasses) for breakfast, and rice, daal and vegetables for lunch — this was the menu for Sudipta Sen’s wife Piyali and son Subhojit in jail.

While Subhojit is lodged in Presidency jail, Piyali is at Alipore Women’s Correctional Home.

The duo, arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in the Saradha case, were sent to judicial custody yesterday. Piyali had been granted bail but could not fulfil one of the three conditions — she could not mortgage with the court immovable property worth Rs 10,000 in Calcutta.

Piyali and Subhojit have been given a set of three blankets each to sleep on.

“Subhojit has been kept in a 6ftx6ft cell. There is a row of such cells at Presidency jail to keep high-security prisoners,” a jail official said. “No one from his family came to meet him.”

On either side of his cell are lodged extortionist Manjit Singh Mangey and Maoist Madhusudan Mondal.

Piyali is sharing a hall with 35 to 40 inmates.

“We serve mutton for lunch every Friday. Piyali missed it since she came in the evening,” a source said.“She told us she had been sent to jail because she failed to show property worth Rs 10,000 in Calcutta. She said she would seek bail again on April 30,” the source added.
