I am begging you, please don’t do this: Kapil Sibal begs SC to not send Chidambaram to Tihar jail, request accepted, for now

If his bail is rejected by the trial court, his CBI custody will be extended for another three days.

The Supreme Court gave temporary relief to P. Chidambaram in the INX Media case after it said on Monday that the senior Congress leader won’t be sent to Tihar jail for now. Kapil Sibal, representing his party colleague, begged the Court to not send his client, P Chidambaram to Tihar. “I am begging of you. Please don’t do this. Protect me till you hear this case. He shouldn’t be sent to Tihar,” Sibal requested the judges.

The Apex Court also directed Chidambaram to approach the trial court for interim protection. If his bail is rejected by the trial court, his CBI custody will be extended for another three days.

Arguing for his client, Sibal had said, “Put me under house arrest or give me interim bail. Protect me for 3 days. Lay down whatever conditions deemed appropriate. The world won’t turn topsy-turvey in next three days.”
