Tihar jail sources said that continuous watch is being kept on Yadav and security has been enhanced.

Yadav who was sent to Tihar by a city court on Thursday is being kept in cell number 18 of ward 10 of the high security prison.

The 32-year-old cab driver was sent to Deen Dayal Upadhyay hospital for his medical examination soon after his arrival in jail on Thursday.

"He has been kept in cell number 18 of ward 10 in the jail number one which is our high security prison. Our men are keeping strict watch on him to avoid any mishap," a senior jail official said.

"He has been kept under strict vigilance and security will be kept tight. He has been kept with three more people, including a 70-year-old man, who won't possibly be any threat to him," the official said.

Yadav who is accused of raping a 27-year-old woman on December 5 night, was yesterday sent in judicial custody till December 24 by a city court.
