Chidambaram's son Karti Chidambaram was also lodged in the same jail earlier.
The court has allowed the former Union minister to take his medicines along with him. Since Chidambaram enjoys Z-category security, the court also allowed him to be kept in a separate cell with adequate arrangements for his security.
