Congress leader P Chidambaram remanded to four days CBI custody in INX Media case

DD News
A Delhi court today allowed four-day CBI custody of Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media corruption case.

Special Judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar said that considering the facts and circumstances, he is of the view that police custody is justified and remanded Chidambaram to CBI's custody till August 26. The Judge asked the agency to conduct a medical examination of the former minister as per the rules.

The court also allowed the family members and lawyers of Chidambaram to meet him for half an hour every day during the custody. 

CBI had sought 5-day custody of Chidambaram for interrogation in the case pertaining to alleged irregularities in the grant of foreign investment clearances to INX Media when he was finance minister. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing CBI, said, Chidambaram was in conspiracy with others in the INX Media scam. He said, Chidambaram's custodial interrogation was necessary to unearth the larger conspiracy and he is required to be confronted with documents.

Chidambaram's advocates opposed the CBI plea on the ground that all the other accused, including his son Karti, have already been granted bail in the case.

The former Finance Minister, who was arrested by CBI last night from his Jor Bagh residence in New Delhi, was produced in the Court this afternoon.
