Accused in INX Media case, UPA-era finance minister P Chidambaram sent to Tihar Jail till September 19

Chidambaram was arrested on August 21 by the CBI after a prolonged drama where he had gone into hiding for over 24 hours after his anticipatory bail plea was rejected by the Delhi High Court.

In a major development, former Union Minister P Chidambaram has been sent to judicial custody at Tihar Jail till September 19, 2019.

However, Chidambaram’s counsels, in a desperate bid to save their client from going to Tihar, had moved an application in Court stating that Chidambaram wants to surrender in Enforcement Directorate case. It is pertinent to note that Chidambaram had refused it earlier.

Earlier today, in a huge setback to former finance minister P Chidambaram, the Supreme Court had refused him anticipatory bail in the INX Media case.

A couple of days back the Central Bureau of Investigation had said that it no longer wants Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram’s custody and that the veteran Congressman should be sent to Tihar till September 5. Chidambaram had then pleaded that he willing to remain in the CBI custody till 5th.

Chidambaram was arrested on August 21 by the CBI after a prolonged drama where he had gone into hiding for over 24 hours after his anticipatory bail plea was rejected by the Delhi High Court.
