Verdict on bail plea of Chidambaram today

Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court is scheduled to deliver the verdict on the interim bail plea of former Union finance minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti in connection with Aircel-Maxis deal today.

The special CBI court had reserved the order on Chidambaram and Karti’s interim bail plea during the last hearing and had also granted the duo protection from arrest in this case till Wednesday (September 3).

The court had also slammed the Enforcement Directorate for not presenting its case properly during the last hearing. It is to be noted that both the ED and CBI had opposed the interim bail plea of Chidambaram and Karti claiming that it need custody of both the accused in order to question them and take the investigation forward.

Meanwhile, the Rouse Avenue Court on Monday extended the CBI custody of Chidambaram in connection with INX Media corruption case by one more day. The hearing on interim bail plea moved by Chidambaram, in this case, will take place on Tuesday at 3 pm.
