Why ex finance minister P Chidambaram is scared of Tihar jail and why he wants house arrest in case of contuous judicial custody after CBI interrogation? 

Former Union Minister P Chidambaram has n respite yet as the 

Supreme Court on Monday extended his CBI custody till Thursday ,September 5.

The veteran congress leader who has spent 11 days i. CBI custody since his dramatic arrest on August 21 however appealed that he should not be sent to Tihar jail but kept in House arrest .

“There must be some protection to Chidambaram. He is 74 years old. Let him be put under house arrest and not to Tihar Jail,” Kapil Sibal, a senior Congress leader, said in the Supreme Court.

In CBI custody, Mr Chidambaram has been put upin a “suite” at the guest-house floor of the CBI headquarters in Delhi.

The top court said the former Finance Minister, arrested by the CBI in a corruption case, should apply for regular bail before the competent court.

The court said house arrest was an option only for political prisoners. The judges, R Banumathi and AS Bopanna, also questioned why MChidambaram was not making the request before the special CBI court, which has to decide on his custody.
