INX Media Case: CBI Wants To Keep Chidambaram In Custody For Five More Days

The Central Bureau of Investigation on Monday sought for five more days custody of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram to complete its interrogations in the INX Media corruption case.

Chidambaram was produced before Special Judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar at a Delhi court on expiry of his four-day CBI custody.

Arguing for CBI, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and Additional Solicitor General KN Natarajan said that there were sufficient grounds for the extension of his custodial interrogation as he was interrogated from Aug. 23-26 and was confronted with a co-accused. The confrontation with co-accused is not complete, the prosecutors said, and placed before the court a file containing email exchanges between the accused persons.

"We need five days of custody of Chidambaram as the confrontation with co-accused will continue to unearth larger conspiracy," said Mehta. PTI
