Delhi Court Dismisses Chidambaram’s Plea To Surrender In INX Media Case

Bookmark

A Delhi court dismissed a plea by former Finance Minister P Chidambaram, lodged in Tihar jail in the INX Media corruption case, seeking to surrender in the money laundering case.

Special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar junked his plea. The Enforcement Directorate had on Thursday told the court that Chidambaram's arrest was necessary in the INX Media money laundering case and it will do so at an appropriate time.

Chidambaram's counsel had contended that the ED's submission is malafide and intended to make him suffer.

Chidambaram is already in judicial custody in the INX Media corruption case being probed by the CBI. He is lodged in Tihar jail.
