P Chidambaram’s CBI custody extended till August 30, CBI to confront him with others accused in the INX Media case

CBI had sought five more days of P Chidambaram’s custody, saying the interrogation of the former finance minister is not over yet.

A special CBI court at the Rouse Avenue court complex has extended the CBI custody of Congress leader P Chidambaram by four more days. Accepting CBI request to extend the custody, the court allowed to them to keep him for custodial interrogation till 30th August.

CBI had sought five more days of P Chidambaram’s custody, saying the interrogation of the former finance minister is not over yet. CBI told the court that he was confronted with one of the co-accused, but it could not be completed as the custody was ending today and he needed to be brought to the court. The agency also told the court that they want to confront the former union minister with more co-accused in the case, and that’s why they need 5 more days of custody.

On 22nd August, the special CBI court had granted CBI four days custody of P Chidambaram, against the agency’s request of five day’s custody. CBI had presented him at the court after his dramatic arrest on 21st August.

Today the Supreme Court had dismissed Chidambaram’s petition against Delhi High Court order rejecting his anticipatory bail plea against arrest by CBI, as the agency has already arrested him and he needs to apply for regular bail. His other petition seeking protection from arrest by ED was taken by the court today but it didn’t complete, which will continue tomorrow. Till then the court has extended his interim protection against arrest by ED.
