‘Missing’ for a day, P Chidambaram surfaces at Congress office, says he was preparing his petition with his lawyers

He said that he is aghast at he was accused of hiding from the law

After ‘missing’ for more than 24 hours following the rejection of anticipatory bail plea by Delhi High Court, Congress leader and former union minister P Chidambaram appeared at the Congress headquarters in Delhi today. The former finance minister addressed a press conference at the AICC officer, denying all the charges made against him and his son.

Saying that the charges are lies spread by pathological liars, he said that he has not been named as an accused in the FIR in the INX Meda case, and no chargesheet has been filed by either ED or CBI in the case. P Chidambaram said that he along with his lawyers worked the whole night last night, and today morning, preparing the petition to be submitted at the Supreme Court seeking interim protection from arrest. He said that he is aghast at he was accused of hiding from the law, although he didn’t reveal where he spent the last night preparing the documents, as it was reported that CBI didn’t find him at his residence. P Chidambaram said that he was with his lawyers during the last night and the whole day today.

Saying that he respected the decision of the Supreme Court to hear his case only on Friday, P Chidambaram said he respects the law even if it is applied unequally by prove agencies.

According to media reports, ED and CBI reached the AICC headquarters to nab him after he appeared addressing the press, but P Chidambaram had already left by then, evading the teams of probe agencies. He had reached home from the AICC office, and it expected that the probe agency teams may pick up him from his residence.
