Delhi High court while hearing the case of former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram today, issued a notice to the CBI in the bail plea demand filed by the leader. The matter will be heard now on September 23.

Justice Suresh Kumar Kait heard the leader’s case today. The judge directed the CBI officials to file a status report in the INX Media case within seven days.

Congress leader’s lawyer Kapil Sibal withdrew the plea challenging the CBI judicial custody as Justice Kait voiced his opposition against it. Justice Kait also told the defense lawyers that they should have moved the bail plea sooner. He said “When you can approach the Supreme Court on the same day, why not file the bail on the same day?”

Congress leader’s judicial custody ends on September 19. P Chidambaram had earlier filed a plea through his Advocate Arshdeep Singh. The plea carried the leader’s claim that he is suffering in the case because of political vendetta.

He said that CBI had arrested him just on assumptions and he has no such alleged involvement to the case. Opposing it, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta has said that the case against the leader is very strong. He also informed the court that due to concrete pieces of evidence only, Delhi High Court had earlier rejected his plea.

P Chidambaram was arrested on August 21 by the investigative agencies on his alleged involvement to the INX media case. Therefore, he was sent to the custody on August 22 in the case.
