NEW DELHI: Interim Congress President Sonia Gandhi is scheduled to visit DK Shivakumar, party leader and former Minister, in Tihar Jail today.

A Congress strongman in Karnataka, Shivakumar was instrumental in smooth running of the JD-S and Congress coalition government.

Last month, Gandhi along with former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had visited former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram in jail. Chidambaram was granted bail by the Supreme Court on Tuesday in the INX media case.
