New Delhi, May 24: Finding life inside Tihar Jail a trifle difficult, Asif Balwa, the cousin of Swan Telecom promoter and key beneficiary of 2G spectrum scam Shahid Usman Balwa, today moved the Delhi High Court pleading to have a cooler, home-made food and an I-pad inside the prison.

Asif, one of the directors of Balwa's D B Realty group firm Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd, also pleaded to the court to allow him to carry an I Pad having digital version of the CBI charge sheet against him.

On Balwa's plea, Justice S Muralidhar issued notices to CBI, Delhi government and the Tihar Jail authority seeking their replies by tomorrow.

"Permit the petitioner (Balwa) to carry an I Pad containing the chargesheet in a digitised electronic form in the jail premises," said Balwa's application filed through advocate Gurpreet Singh. PTI
