INX media case: CBI seeks15-day judicial custody of Karti Chidambaram

INX Media case Karti Chidambaram sent to judicial custody till March 24

The son of the former finance minister has been in custody since his arrest on February 28 in the INX Media corruption case where he is alleged to have used the office of his father, then finance minister, to favour INX Media in getting FIPB clearances.

"His father P Chidambaram has dealt with stringent penal laws including TADA and MCOCA, posing a huge security threat to Karti". The special CBI court acknowledged that the accused is a son of a former union minister, however it said that his "social status" can not be the basis of providing him any special facility like a separate jail.

Yesterday, the Delhi Court extended the CBI custody of Chidambaram, till March 12.

The Delhi court ordered the jail authorities to ensure that adequate security is provided to Karti Chidambaram until March 24.

The editor had posed a question as to whether Justice Muralidhar, who was part of the bench which had passed the order granting protection to Karti Chidambaram, was a junior of former UPA minister and senior advocate P Chidambaram. The counsel also sought a separate cell in case Karti was sent to judicial custody.

"In view of the fact that no more police custody remand of accused is sought by CBI, accused Karti Chidambaram is remanded to judicial custody".

CBI counsel V K Sharma opposed the application for a separate cell and bathroom saying there was no threat to Karti. He has cited security threats in his request.

The judge, however, did not find reason to grant his plea for a separate cell, saying Karti can not be treated differently from the other accused just because of his and his father's social status. We are outraged with the CBI stand on Karti's plea.
