When Ram Singh, the main accused along with Pawan Gupta and Vinay Sharma were sent to 14 days judicial custody on Monday morning, Ram Singh was supposedly beaten up by the prisoners of the Tihar jail. ‘During the scuffle, Ram Singh was accompanied by a few police officials, but the angry prisoners who were well aware of the atrocity  committed but they still attacked him,’ said S Gupta, spokesperson of Tihar Jail.
