Configure the board to examine P Chidambaram, HC tells AIIMS

NEW DELHI: The HC of Delhi asked the director on Thursday to establish a medical board to examine the health of former finance minister P Chidambaram, who is currently staying at Tihar prison in the INX media money laundering case.

The management of the HC came to a plea from Chidambaram in search of a provisional bond for medical reasons, since he was suffering and wanted to consult his usual doctor in Hyderabad.

Judge Suresh Kait asked AIIMS to include the Hyderabad-based gastroenterologist at the meeting.
