Mumbai, Mar 16: In yet another volte-face, Zaheera Shaikh, sentenced to one-year jail for her flip-flops in the Best Bakery case and for contempt of court, today informed a sessions court here that she wanted to spend the jail term in Vadodara, and therefore may be handed over to the Gujarat police.

When Zaheera had surrendered before the court here on March 10 in keeping with the Supreme Court order, she urged for serving the sentence in a Maharashtra jail and not in a Gujarat prison as she apprehended a threat to her life there.

Appearing before Judge Abhay Thipsay, Zaheera said, "They will kill me here. They are not providing good food and also not allowing me to perform namaz. I want to go to Vadodara."

As Zaheera did the turnaround today, the court decided to keep her in custody till March 20 because the Gujarat police were not present, and also because it was awaiting Supreme Court directives on the manner in which the sentence awarded to Zaheera should be executed.
