The High Court has directed Tihar Jail authorities to provide clean surroundings, mineral water, home-cooked food, protection from mosquitoes to Chidambaram.

The Delhi High Court on Friday rejected P Chidambaram’s bail plea on medical grounds saying the senior Congress leader doesn’t need hospitalisation.

Placing medical reports before the Delhi High Court on Friday, the medical board told the court that "hospitalisation of Chidambaram was not necessary as all his vitals are normal".

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta read out the report of AIIMS Medical Board, set up on the court's order to examine Chidambaram's health condition and said the Congress leader does not require a sterile environment.

After the AIIMS board placed its report, Delhi HC directed Tihar Jail authorities to provide clean surroundings, mineral water, home-cooked food, protection from mosquitoes to Chidambaram.

The Delhi High Court had on Thursday directed the AIIMS director to constitute a medical board to give opinion on the health of former finance minister P Chidambaram, who is suffering from Crohn's disease and is currently lodged in Tihar jail in the INX Media money laundering case.

The court also directed that Chidambaram's medical check up be done regularly.

The court disposed of the plea after senior advocate Kapil Sibal, representing Chidambaram, said they do not require any further direction.

Chidambaram had sought interim bail in the case, filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), on medical grounds saying his condition is deteriorating and he needs to be in a sterile environment.
