  • P Chidambaram to be produced before CBI court in INX media scam

    Published on August 22, 2019

    Senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram who are arrested by CBI in connection with INX media corruption case will be produced before a Delhi Court  today. He was arrested by the probe agency last night from his Jor Bagh residence in New Delhi.

    Chidambaram was kept at the CBI Headquarters after his arrest. The Former Union Minister was missing since rejection of his anticipatory bail by Delhi High Court on Tuesday.

    He, however, appeared at Congress Headquarters and addressed the media yesterday evening. Rejecting reports of his evading the law, he told reporters that he was working with his lawyers through the last night, preparing his papers for his bail application.

    The Congress leader had moved Supreme Court seeking protection from arrest in the INX media cases. However, he failed to get any immediate relief from the apex court which will hear his plea on Friday.

    The CBI had been seeking Chidambaram’s custodial interrogation in the case pertaining to alleged irregularities in the grant of foreign investment clearances to INX Media when he was Finance Minister in the UPA-I government. The senior Congress leader’s role had come under the scanner of investigating agency in the INX Media case involving 305 crore rupees.
