HC extends protection to Chidambaram, Karti


A Delhi court has extended till August 1 the interim protection from arrest granted to former Union minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti in the Aircel-Maxis cases by the CBI and the ED.

The Special Judge, OP Saini, extended the protection after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) sought three weeks’ time to argue on their anticipatory bail plea, at which the lawyers appearing for the Chidambarams requested for an extension of interim protection granted earlier.

The agency said its Special Director had gone to Singapore and it is to be seen if there would be any further development. The ED said they had details of the bank accounts which they were probing.
