A Delhi court today extended the judicial custody of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram till 3rd of next month in connection with the INX Media corruption case.

Special Judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar also allowed medical examination of Chidambaram.

The court extended the judicial custody of Chidambaram after the Central Bureau of Investigation sought extension of the veteran Congress leader's judicial remand.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for CBI, sought extension of the judicial custody and said there has been no change of circumstance from the day he was first sent to jail.

Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Chidambaram, opposed the investigative agency's plea to extend his judicial custody. He moved an application on behalf of Chidambaram seeking regular medical check-up and adequate supplementary diet during judicial custody in Tihar Jail.

Solicitor General said the health of any inmate is of concern and whatever is permissible in law, would be done by the jail authorities.

The CBI had registered an FIR on 15th May, 2017, alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance granted to the INX Media group for receiving overseas funds of 305 crore rupees in 2007 during Chidambaram's tenure as the Finance Minister.


Thereafter, the Enforcement Directorate lodged a money laundering case in this regard in 2017.
