n Following a stomach ache, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram, who has been in Tihar jail since September 5, on Saturday was referred to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for a medical check-up.
Though, the inmates lodged in Tihar prison are usually referred to the Deen Dayal Upadhyay hospital but as per direction of the Court Chidambaram was taken to AIIMS for the treatment. Earlier, a court order had said that if P Chidambaram complains of any medical issue, he should be referred to AIIMS, RML hospital or Safdarjung hospital.
P Chidambaram has been under CBI custody since August 21. Chidambaram is facing investigations in the INX Media case. The CBI and ED have accused him of misusing his position as India’s Finance Minister to benefit INX Media.
