Reportedly the delhi High Court has rejected former Union finance minister P chidambaram's anticipatory plea for protection from arrest in the INX Media case. Meanwhile chidambaram’s lawyers on Tuesday asked for three-day stay and interim protection from arrest with both the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) opposing his plea saying the Congress leader was required for custodial interrogation.

Furthermore following the rejection of the anticipatory bail plea, P Chidambram lawyers are likely to approach the Supreme Court. Justice Sunil Gaur, who delivered the judgment, had reserved the order on January 25. In 2007, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had registered an FIR alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance given to INX Media to the tune of Rs 305 crore in 2007 when chidambaram was the Union finance minister.



Moreover based on the FIR, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had filed a Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) case against him. Apparently chidambaram's son Karti has also been named in the two cases. He was arrested on February 28, 2018 by the CBI and was later released on bail and the ED had attached properties belonging to him. Previously on July 4, a delhi court had allowed Indrani Mukerjea, the former head of the INX Media, to turn an approver in the CBI case. Hence the agency had submitted that it has come across evidence in the form of conversations which only Indrani Mukerjea is privy to and will help consolidate the case.
