"Kasab gets vegetarian food now since non-veg is not allowed in the jail. Earlier, when food was being cooked for around a dozen police personnel and Kasab, the cooks would prepare non-veg at times. But, today, Kasab gets what other petty criminals eat," said a jail official as reported by the Times of India.
Reports reveal that Kasab is served plain food as others in the jail.
Earlier, the Mumbai police personnel's deployed outside Amir Ajmal Kasab's prison cell would make food for themselves.
"They would sometimes make spicy non-veg food and biryani, too. But since the police cooks were removed last month, Kasab is being given food meant for the undertrials," said a jail source. Kasab was provided non-veg food even when he was in police custody.
The whole incident came to light after the Mumbai police objected to the illegal transfer of cooks for Kasab and seven other jailors following which they were posted back to their original duties.
