Supreme Court to hear Chidambaram’s appeal against arrest by CBI on Monday

Agency News

The Supreme Court has decided to hear P Chidambaram’s appeal against arrest by the CBI on Monday, when his CBI custody ends.

His previous petition in the top court challenging the denial of protection from arrest in the INX Media case doesn't stand after his arrest by CBI on Wednesday.

P Chidambaram was arrested late on Wednesday night by CBI after the Delhi High Court on Tuesday rejected his pre-arrest bail. Yesterday, a special court sent Mr Chidambaram to CBI custody for five days, saying it was "justified" and the "enormity of the alleged money" required an in-depth probe.
