The special CBI court has sent former Finance Minister P Chidambaram to Tihar jail in the INX Media corruption case.

Special Judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar sent Chidambaram to 14-day judicial custody till September 19.

The court allowed him to carry his medicines to jail. Considering that he has Z-security, the court directed Chidambaram be kept in separate cell in the jail.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta assured that there will be adequate security for Chidambaram in jail.

Meanwhile, in another case, a Delhi court had granted bail to Karti and P Chidambaram in the Aircel-Maxis case. But this means nothing to Chidambaram as he has already been sent to Tihar jail in the INX media case.

The Delhi court granted anticipatory bail to P Chidambaram and his son Karti in cases filed by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate on the Aircel-Maxis case.
