P Chidambaram appeals for home-cooked food inside Tihar, court to hear plea on the day his judicial custody ends

Earlier, the Delhi High Court had on Monday dismissed Chidambaram's bail plea in the INX Media case.

Former Union Minister P Chidambaram has moved a plea in a trial court seeking home-cooked food during judicial custody that ends on October 3. The court heeding to his application has listed the plea to be heard on October 3, the same day when his judicial custody is set to end.

Earlier, the Delhi High Court had on Monday dismissed Chidambaram’s bail plea in the INX Media case. Justice Suresh Kumar Kait dismissed the bail on the grounds that the accused is a member of the bar of advocates as well as an MP and the witnesses are likely to be influenced on his release. Delhi High Court had earlier made scathing remarks about Chidambaram’s involvement in the case, terming the former Union Minister as the kingpin of the INX Media Case.

The court, however, admitted that Chidambaram is not at risk of absconding and there is no possibility of tampering of evidence. Kait rejected the petition after hearing arguments from both sides. During the hearing, on behalf of the prosecution, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said, “We are at a stage where we have exposed our evidence to the accused.” So the risk of tampering and influencing them is very high.

Chidambaram has been lodged in Tihar since September 5 after his CBI custody ended. Desperate to escape Tihar, Chidambaram had appealed to surrender to ED. But the court had dismissed his pleas. The Delhi HC had already dismissed an earlier plea for home-cooked food.
