Former Union minister P Chidambaram’s plea at the SC against the Delhi HC order rejecting his appeal for interim protection from arrest will be heard by the apex court on Friday.

Earlier today, the SC has refused to pass an order over Chidambaram’s plea and has stated that the matter will be placed before CJI Ranjan Gogoi.

Chidambaram’s legal team had tried its best to list the matter today before CJI Gogoi’s bench as the CJI was busy hearing the Ram Janmabhoomi case. At 4.30 pm, CJI’s bench rose for the day without the Chidambaram’s legal counsel mentioning his petition.

Earlier today, Chidambaram’s legal team with prominent Congress leader Kapil Sibal and senior advocate Vivek Tankha had petitioned to justice NV Ramana for immediate relief to Chidambaram.

Justice NV Ramana had refused to list the matter and asked Chidambaram to mention the matter before Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi. Congress leader and senior advocate Kapil Sibal had rushed to the CJI court. Meanwhile, the Ayodhya case hearing had begun and there had been no mention of Chidambaram case till late afternoon.

Earlier today, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) had 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 now been almost 24 hours since the former Union Finance and Home Minister has been absconding. The CBI and the ED have also issued a lookout circular against Chidambaram.

The Congress leader and former Union Minister is facing arrest for his alleged involvement in the INX Media scam.

Update: A bench of Justice R Banumathi and Justice AS Bopanna will hear the petition filed by P Chidambaram against the Delhi High Court order rejecting the anticipatory bail plea.
