Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court has called for the medical records of businessman Anoop Kumar Gupta, an accused in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal case, after he moved the court seeking home-cooked, gluten-free vegetarian food in jail.
Special CBI Judge Arvind Kumar issued notice to the Tihar Jail Superintendent over the application moved by Gupta through Advocates Kumar Pushkar Piyush and Shadman Ahmad Siddiqui.
Gupta’s counsel submitted before the Special Judge that his client is suffering from allergy and may be provided home-cooked gluten-free vegetarian food as advised by the doctor.
The plea also sought for court’s direction to provide an attendant cum caretaker, spectacles, bedding. It was urged that applicant may be permitted to have some person from his family as attendant in view of the medical condition.
The plea claims that Gupta is suffering from chest pain, palpitation, high blood sugar, osteoarthritis and dyspnoea due to which he has difficulty in breathing, walking and sitting and was referred to GB Pant Hospital on March 10.
Gupta was arrested in January 2021 after the agency allegedly got several evidences against him in connection with its money laundering probe.
