Blow to Chidambaram: SC refuses to list the matter today, HC order rejecting his anticipatory bail plea to stay in force

The former minister was last seen at around 5 PM on Tuesday evening, after which he abandoned his official car and went 'missing'.

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.”
