Top Maoist leader Kobad Ghandy today moved a Delhi court seeking a direction to be provided with a chair and table in jail.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja directed the authorities of Tihar jail, where Ghandy, a central committee member of banned CPI (Maoist), is at present lodged, to consider his plea as per the prison manual.

Ghandy, 63, who was produced before the court, made the plea for the chair and table saying he required them as he was suffering from arthritis.

The Maoist leader is also learnt to have been writing a book on his wife Anuradha.

Meanwhile, the court extended the judicial custody of Ghandy till January 22.

Ghandy, an ideologue and think-tank of the banned outfit, has been booked for various charges under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act after his arrest from the capital on September 20.
