New Delhi: Former Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was today taken to the same Tihar jail cell where his mentor Anna Hazare was kept after his arrest during the Lokpal movement in 2011, prison officials said.


Kejriwal will stay alone in jail number four, where he will sleep on the floor and will be served routine jail food. He has also been allowed to take his medicines, Tihar spokesperson Sunil Gupta said.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader reached Tihar jail at 6:30 pm after he was arrested and remanded to judicial custody by a local court till May 23 for refusing to furnish a bail bond of Rs 10,000 in a defamation case filed by BJP leader Nitin Gadkari.

After his arrival, Kejriwal underwent a medical check-up as per rules.
