NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Thursday sent Former Indian Finance Minister P. Chidambaram to judicial custody in the CBI case involving INX Media.

Special CBI Judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar sent Chidambaram to 14 days in custody after the former Union minister was produced before in court on Thursday.

The court also allowed applications moved by Chidambaram seeking medicines and a western-style toilet in jail along with Z-category security and a separate cell with a cot and a bathroom, Indian media reported.

Chidambaram has also moved another application in the court seeking permission to surrender in the Enforcement Directorate case relating to INX Media. The court had issued a notice to the financial watchdogs and the hearing on it would take place on September 12.

During the course of hearing, Chidambaram’s counsel Kapil Sibal said, “There is nothing found against me. If I am a powerful person and I can influence the witness, they should bring some evidence of at least an attempt of tampering of evidence or influencing of witnesses.”
