New delhi sources stated that the judicial custody of former finance minister P chidambaram in the INX Media case has been extended till October 3 by Supreme Court on Thursday. Meanwhile the Congress leader’s lawyer Kapil Sibal also sought regular medical examination of his client to which Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said, “Whatever rights are given to other prisoner, same can be asked by him also through application.”

Furthermore the 74 year old leader also made a request for bank statement of an account in a bank at delhi’s Jor Bagh branch, which the court has allowed. When opposing the CBI plea to extend his judicial custody, Sibal said, “The extension of custody cannot be mechanical process. The reason needs to be stated for the extension of the custody.”



Earlier on Wednesday, senior Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and ahmed Patel met him at Tihar Jail and they were accompanied by chidambaram’s son and Congress MP, Karti chidambaram. INX Media co-founders Peter Mukerjea and his wife Indrani Mukerjea have been charged with entering into a criminal conspiracy with Karti chidambaram, P chidambaram’s son, to secure clearance from FIPB for the foreign investment received by the company and evade punitive measures for not having the requisite approvals.
