After the Supreme Court denied pre-arrest bail plea to former Union Minister P Chidambaram in INX Media case, the Delhi High Court granted anticipatory bail to P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram on Thursday.
The Delhi HC special judge O P Saini ruled both P Chidambaram and Karti Chidambaram are released on a personal bond of rupees 1 lakh surety.
Judge Saini also added, the accused are directed to take part in the investigation.
P Chidambaram has been in the CBI custody for 15 days for money laundering in the INX Media case. He was arrested by the CBI on August 21.
The Delhi HC also said, the Chidambarams cannot possibly commit similar crime since they don’t hold any official position in the present scenario.
