Chidambaram gets access to library, TV at Tihar

Former union finance minister P Chidambaram had a light breakfast of tea and porridge Friday in Tihar Jail after taking a short walk in the courtyard.

Thursday night the senior Congress leader had rotis, rice, dal and sabji. Jail authorities are not giving special facilities to him except a separate cell as he is a protectee under Z-security and a Western toilet.

Prison officials added P Chidambaram can have access to the library housed inside Tihar jail and he can watch television for a specified period.

P Chidambaram was sent to Tihar Jail for a 14-day judicial custody on Thursday by the court.

Following a mandatory health check-up the former minister was lodged in Jail Ni. 7 where his son Karti Chidambaram too was earlier lodged for twelve days.

Jail No. 7 of Tihar Jail usually houses accused in cases of ED.

According to jail officials, the cell was prepared in advance amid the ongoing court cases against P Chidambaram doubting bail plea will be rejected and he may turn up in Tihar.

The usual menu of Tihar Jail is rotis, rice, dal and sabji. Inmates drink water from a RO plant installed in it or can purchase packaged bottle from the canteen.
