Karti Chidambaram files caveat before SC in anticipation that ED might move court to secure arrest

Karti Chidambaram, the son of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram has filed a caveat in the Supreme Court to hear him before passing any order on the reprieve granted to him yesterday by the Delhi High Court. The Delhi High Court on Friday had passed an order which said that if he is granted bail by a trial court in the CBI case, the ED cannot arrest him till March 20, the date of his next hearing.

Karti has done it in anticipation that the ED might move to the SC against the order and try to arrest him before March 20. Karti’s lawyer Arun Natarajan in the INX Media case has stated that they have filed the caveat in the SC to intimate and hear them if the ED challenges the Delhi High Court order.

Karti’s CBI custody ended on March 9th. Yesterday, the Patiala House court had extended Karti’s CBI custody till March 12. The court had also allowed the CBI to bring Karti face to face with his arrested charted accountant Bhaskaran in the Tihar Jail. The same court will now hear his bail plea on March 15. The Delhi High Court provided Karti interim relief on an event of arrest by ED till March 20.

According to reports, Karti feared that the ED will immediately arrest him after that. He had moved to Delhi High Court after the SC directed him to withdraw his petition there and approach the Delhi HC for challenging the summons of ED.

Karti’s lawyer has also stated that the CBI wanted to do a polygraph test on Karti and they have given a written petition claiming that there can be no compulsion regarding the test.

Karti was arrested by the CBI on February 28 from the Chennai airport. His CA, Bhaskaran was arrested on February 16. Karti was arrested for his alleged involvement in the INX Media scam.
