After Karti was taken into CBI’s custody, he requested for home-cooked food, and when the court had denied this request, he reportedly came up by saying “I hope your investigating officer will have Swiggy or Zomato to order food. I am planning to make full use of it.” When the CBI denied this as well, Karti replied saying “Then you will have to get Swiggy or Zomato.”
He also reportedly refused to remove his gold ornaments. In addition to this, Karti communicated with his friend in Tamil, when a CBI official asked him to communicate in English, he said: “If that is the case, even you should speak in English with each other when I am there.”
The CBI official then reportedly replied saying “You are in custody, not us.”
