The Supreme Court today has not listed the matter in senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram case today. That means, the Delhi High Court order rejecting his anticipatory bail continues to stay in force.
Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal appearing for P Chidambaram before Supreme Court judge Ramana said that the latter is not running away or fleeing. He even gave an undertaking that Chidambaram will not go anywhere. Sibal had requested that the matter be listed before the Supreme Court today. However, the SC declined to pass any order. Kapil Sibal is expected to approach the CJI after the Ayodhya hearing is over for the day.
Earlier today, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a caveat in the Supreme Court asking the court to keep them in the loop in response to a petition filed by P Chidambaram seeking protection from arrest. The Central Bureau of Investigation has filed a caveat in the Supreme Court which said, “Let nothing be done without notice to us.”
It has been over 20 hours since the former minister has gone ‘missing’ after he abandoned his official car last evening. His phone was last traced at Lodhi Road, New Delhi, after which it has been switched off. The ED has issued a lookout circular for him.
