"Both the accused be taken into custody and sent to judicial custody," the judge said.

The duo surrendered before the court after the trial court had confiscated their properties while the Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court dismissed their repeated pleas to grant them anticipatory bail.

The court had directed CBI to file by August 18 details of expenses incurred so far in attaching their properties. It had also asked CBI to not to attach their immovable properties if the order relating to it has not been executed so far.

Madan and Arya's Gem International was a sub-contractor of Swiss firm 'Swiss Timing' which was allegedly illegally granted the TSR contract causing a loss of over Rs 90 crore to the exchequer. While remanding the duo to judicial custody, the court allowed both Madan and Arya to carry their medicines and medical prescription slips to jail.

The court also directed prison superintendent to get them medically examined by the jail doctor by tomorrow and asked him to decide on their pleas for orthopaedic equipment, notebook and pen as per jail rules.

Besides, Madan and Arya, there are nine others accused in the TSR scam, with sacked OC chairman Kalmadi being the prime accused.
