INX Media Case: Former Finance Minister, P Chidambaram sent to 4 days in CBI custody

P. Chidambaram was brought to Rouse Avenue Court complex around 3 pm after a medical check-up. His son Karti and wife Nalini had arrived much earlier.

His team of lawyers including Senior Congress leaders Kapil Sibal and Abhishek Singhvi.

Chidambaram, briefly spoken to his lawyers, later moved to the accused box as they waited for CBI judge, to start the proceedings.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta requested for CBI custody and stated that Ex-minister’s responses to the investigators were evasive and his custodial interrogation was crucial.

He further added that,“Right to silence is a constitutional right and I have no issue, but he is non cooperative, he was evasive to questioning”.

Kapil Sibal asked CBI Court to release Chidambaram on bail, stating that Karti Chidambaram, also an accused in this case, was released on bail in the case and there was no reason to hold his father in custody.
