Pursuant to his arrest last night, former Union Minister P Chidambaram has approached the Special CBI Court at Rouse Avenue Court Complex in Delhi to get bail.
Chidambaram, who was denied anticipatory bail in the INX Media case by the Delhi High Court on Tuesday, had immediately moved the Supreme Court challenging this order. After several attempts to secure an urgent listing of the petition failed, Chidambaram’s petition was eventually expected to be taken up on Friday for hearing.
In the meanwhile, CBI officials arrested Chidambaram late last night. He has now approached the Special CBI Court for regular bail.

Sibal says he does not want the questions to be made public, only wants to ascertain the genuineness of the questions.
P Chidambaram permitted to speak. “For June 6, 2018, please ask for the transcript…there is no question which has not been answered. The allegations of 5 million or whatever were never put to me. Only asked me if I have a foreign bank account.”
Order on remand reserved.
