P Chidambaram case: SC didn’t take up the petition due to defects in it, CBI and ED file caveats at the apex court

CBI and ED has filed caveat requesting that the Supreme Court should order nothing on Chidambaram's bail plea without hearing them

On Tuesday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) 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. 

According to the reports, the Central Bureau of Investigation has filed a caveat in the Supreme Court which said, “Let nothing be done without notice to us.” Senior Advocate Tushar Mehta filed the caveat on behalf of the CBI also in the Supreme Court.

Addition to reports, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) also filed a similar caveat in the Supreme Court.

Earlier, the ED had issued a fresh lookout circular against P Chidambaram to restrict his movement across land, air and seaports.

Facing arrest in the INX media case, former Union Minister P Chidambaram has reached out to the Supreme Court of India seeking exemption against any CBI action, after the Delhi High Court had rejected his plea for anticipatory bail yesterday. In his plea to the apex court, Chidambaram’s lawyers argued that he was not at all involved with the money laundering case related to INX media and ED’s action is borne out of malafide intentions.

Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister P Chidambaram has been on the run since last evening after the Delhi High Court rejected both his anticipatory bail pleas. Today the Supreme Court also refused to grant him relief from arrest by refusing to accept an urgent hearing of his petition. Senior Congress leaders Kapil Sibal, Salman Khurshid, AM Singhvi and Ashwani Kumar are in the court to defend accused Chidambaram.

P Chidambaram has not got any immediate relief so far from the Supreme Court as the matter was transferred to Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi’s court. A bench headed by J N V Ramana had transferred the Chidambaram’s plea before CJI to consider for urgent listing. But as the bench headed by the CJI already started hearing the Ayodhya case, the matter could not be listed before the CJI.

The records of the Supreme Court also show that the special leave petition filed by Chidambaram’s lawyers have defects. The SC website shows that there are 4 defects in the petition, and until those defects are not corrected, the petition can’t be taken up by the court. It shows that the petition was filed in a hurry as they made some basic mistakes in it. It is expected that the lawyers will file a corrected petition soon.

The INX Media case relates to discrepancies and alleged shady dealings in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance given to the media group for international investment funds worth several hundred crores. Chidambaram was the finance minister at that time. As per reports, the ED is hopeful of getting Chidambaram’s custody following which he could be questioned on the source of money through which his son and Congress MP Karti Chidambaram bought various properties in India and abroad including a tennis club in Spain, cottages in the UK. These properties are reportedly valued at Rs 54 crore.
