New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday sought CBI's response on former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala's plea seeking extension of his interim bail on medical grounds.

Justice Siddharth Mridul issued notice to CBI and sought its response by July 4 on Chautala's application for extension of his interim bail, saying his pacemaker implantation was done on June 3 and the doctor had advised him to come for regular checkups for three months.

He was granted interim bail on May 21 and it expires on July 4.

On January 22, a trial court had convicted and sentenced Chautala and nine others, including his son Ajay Chautala, to 10 years jail term for illegally recruiting 3,206 junior teachers in 2000.

The 78-year-old leader also sought court's permission to visit his native village Chautala in Haryana. Chautala is undergoing treatment at Medanta Medicity Hospital in Gurgaon. Apart from heart ailment, he said he is also suffering from several old-age problems.
