"Treatment mentioned in the discharge summary (of AIIMS medical board) be provided to accused Suresh Kalmadi by the jail hospital," Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh said after taking cognisance of Kalmadi's medical report submitted to the court by the board.

Kalmadi was recently discharged from AIIMS after a three-day medical examination of his various suspected ailments related to neurology, cardiology and his general physical conditions.

Earlier he had undergone a MRI brain scan at LNJP hospital that triggered speculation that he was suffering from dementia.

The court also asked Jaychandran not to mark to the court copies of his letters to the CBI Director. Jayachandran had been writing to the CBI Director to expedite all probes relating to him in various CWG scams, including a case related to the award of a contract for Timing Scoring and Result system for the 2010 games to a Swiss firm.
