The plea challenging the Delhi Court’s denial of anticipatory bail for former finance minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media case will be heard in the Supreme Court today. There will also be hearing of a fresh plea filed by the former minister against the trial court’s order of sending him to the custody of CBI.
Chidambaram was arrested from his residence in Delhi’s Jor Bagh area. His dramatic arrest came hours after holding a press conference at the Congress headquarters where he was finally spotted after being incognito for a few days. The former finance minister has rejected all the allegations against him in the INX Media case.
