SC notice to CBI on Chidambaram’s bail plea in INX Media case
New Delhi, October 4
The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the CBI, asking it to respond on former finance minister P Chidambaram’s plea seeking bail in the INX Media corruption case.
A bench of Justices R Banumathi and Hrishikesh Roy asked Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the CBI, to file its response and posted the matter for hearing on October 15.
Chidambaram, who is lodged in Tihar Jail under judicial custody, has moved the top court, challenging the September 30 verdict of the Delhi High Court which had dismissed his plea seeking bail.
