Former Union minister P Chidambaram, who is in judicial custody in INX Media case, moved a Delhi court on Thursday seeking certain facilities for his time in custody. This includes lodging at CBI office or other similar place, security, home-cooked food, western toilet, medicines and spectacles and family visits.
The application was filed by the Chidambaram’s lawyer Kapil Sibal on the day his judicial custody ended and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) sought his 14-day custody in a money laundering case. The ED arrested Chidambaram Wednesday after questioning him in Tihar jail, where he is in custody on corruption charges brought by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the same case.
