INX Media Case: Supreme Court Issues Notice To CBI On P Chidambaram’s Bail Plea

Bookmark

The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to Central Bureau of Investigation, 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 CBI, to file its response and posted the matter for hearing on Oct. 15.

Chidambaram, who is lodged in Tihar Jail under judicial custody, has moved the top court, challenging the Sept. 30 verdict of the Delhi High Court which had dismissed his plea seeking bail in the case.
