Portuguese authorities arrived on Tuesday after Salem complained of a threat to his life.
The IG Prisons was present at the meeting along with doctors who treat prisoners, the SP of Taloja Jail, a CBI officer and Salem's lawyer. Salem's lawyer Saba Qureshi said, "Abu Salem said the quality of food is really bad and he has to eat vegetarian food.
Jail SP Sadanand Gaikwad said, "We can't give him chicken. If a doctor asks us to provide eggs to a prisoner, we provide them. He can buy eggs in the canteen. Secondly, many others stay in the same type of barrack where Abu Salem stays. It has an open roof so everyone gets fresh air and sunlight every day. He always complains about his health but his doctor says he is healthy. His allegations are baseless."
