A Delhi court on Monday sent Karti Chidambaram to judicial custody till March 24 in the INX Media case, ANI reported.

He was arrested in February for allegedly taking money to facilitate Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media in 2007 when his father was the Finance Minister in the UPA Government.

Central Bureau of Investigation had arrested Karti, the son of veteran Congressman P Chidambaram, on February 28 at Chennai Airport on his return from London with the allegation that he was not cooperating with the probe agency. Karti Chidambaram filed a petition in the court three days after Delhi's Patiala court sent him to CBI custody for 3 more days. "Some of the accused related to those cases are lodged in Tihar so I apprehend a great threat to my security", he said. However, the judge directed Tihar Jail authorities to provide and ensure proper safety and security to Karti during the judicial custody.

Special CBI judge Sunil Rana said the social status of the accused can not be the basis for a separate prison.

When the CBI opposed the plea for separate cell on the ground that if at all there was any threat, it was to P Chidambaram and not his son, Krishnan expressed shock and said the CBI's objection has enhanced the threat perception.

Karti's counsel said, "this gives further proof to my apprehension".

The court allowed Karti to carry spectacles and medicines as per prescription subject to examination and approval by the jail doctor, but denied his request to carry toiletries, books, clothes and home food.

He was remanded in CBI custody for three days after the investigative agency claimed it had recovered some incriminating documents and CD from the Chennai office of Advantage Strategic Pvt Ltd., a company linked to him.

"Since the bail application is already fixed for filing of reply/consideration on March 15, the present application is dismissed", the court said. P. Chidambaram also attended the court hearing, as he has done previously during other hearings.

Karti was arrested on his return from the United Kingdom in connection with the FIR lodged on May 15 a year ago.

As per reports, the CBI had initially alleged that Karti received Rs 10 lakh as bribe for the FIPB clearance. Karti is alleged to have been paid over Rs 3 crore by the two former co-owners of the media house, Peter and Indrani Mukerjea, who are now in jail on charges of murdering Sheena Bora, the daughter of Indrani.
