Reportedly in a reply filed on the chidambaram' petition, the CBI said that granting bail in "such cases will set a wrong precedent" in the corruption cases. When hearing on the petition filed by chidambaram, who is currently lodged Tihar Jail, is scheduled to take place on Monday. Furthermore on Thursday, a delhi court extended his till judicial custody to October 3 in the corruption case filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and he was arrested by the CBI on August 21 and was in its custody till September 5. On August 6, he was sent to judicial custody which was to end on Thursday.



Moreover chidambaram, through one of his counsels, sought the court's direction for a regular check-up and adequate supplement diet in the jail, asserting that he is facing various ailments and has lost some weight during his jail-term. Perhaps his counsel Kapil Sibal also said that the Congress leader was given even a chair or pillow in his cell.
