P Chidambaram Arrested After CBI Team Manages To Enter His Home

New Delhi : Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram was arrested in INX Media case after high drama at his house

Former Union minister Chidambaram’s residence in posh South Delhi witnessed high drama as the senior leader – sought by investigative agencies for nearly 24 hours in connection with a corruption case — appeared at the Congress headquarters this evening.

As he reached home after addressing the media, teams of CBI and the Enforcement Directorate, though caught off guard, had converged outside. In their attempt to make their way inside the house, the CBI men were even seen scaling the boundary wall and running along the roof in full view of television cameras.

In his short address to the media at the party office, Mr Chidambaram pointed out that he has not been named an accused in the case. But he said he has faith in the law “even if it is applied by an unequal hand” by the investigative agencies.
