INX Media: Delhi Court to pronounce order on ED’s plea to arrest P Chidambaram

A Delhi court will pronounce its order today on the Enforcement Directorate’s plea seeking to arrest and interrogate former finance minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media money laundering case. Senior Congress leader Chidambaram is in judicial custody till October 17 in the INX Media corruption case filed by the CBI.

Appearing for the ED, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told Special Judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar that there is a finding by the Supreme Court that custodial interrogation of Chidambaram is necessary. He said, the ED has moved the application for Chidambaram’s arrest and remand because money laundering is a separate offence.
