    "The court wanted us to show if Indian jails are hygienic. We have given them proof of the hygiene level and medical facilities available in jail. In fact, the barrack in which Mr Mallya would be lodged is east-facing so it has a lot of sunlight too," NDTV quoted a source as saying. Mallya would also be given access to a library to keep himself occupied.
