INX Media Case: Delhi HC grants interim relief to Karti Chidambaram

The second is to allow the CBI to bring Indrani and Peter Mukerjea to Delhi and identify the places where they met Karti Chidambaram.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) requested Special Judge Sunil Rana for the narco test, saying it would help unearth the conspiracy in the case.

The court also directed the investigating officer to get Karti medically examined as per the rules every 24 hours during the custody. P Chidambaram was present during the proceedings, both in the high court and the trial court, while his wife Nalini, also a senior advocate, was there in the trial court.

Karti, the son of former finance minister, P Chidambaram, was arrested after arrived from London at Chennai airport on 28 February. CBI also submitted Indrani' statement in a sealed envelope.

After the bench passed the order allowing Karti to withdraw his petition and approaching high court, Sibal apologised for the comment but said he was not happy with the way things were going.

US, N. Korea go from threats to possible summit in a flash
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said news of the possible meeting gave reasons to be hopeful about Korea. A senior State Department official told CNN "we'll be ready" for the talks to advance.

This is an interim relief for the 46-year-old businessman that comes a day after the apex court transferred the case to the Delhi High Court with his plea to cancel the summons issued by ED. The counsel argued that the CBI is only harassing the accused by seeking further custody and does not have any new material to confront him with.

After hearing the arguments, the court extended the custody of Karti by three more days till March 12.

Delhi High Court has today granted Interim Relief to former Congress leader's son Karti Chidambaram, observing ED can not arrest Karti if gets bail by a trial court in the INX media.

Singhvi said Karti's blood pressure (BP) levels are fluctuating between 140 and 190 and he is in bad shape. However, the ED is planning to appeal in the Supreme Court against the HC order. It had registered an ECIR, against the accused named in a CBI complaint. Earlier, he had sought bail from the court alleging that the CBI was acting at the behest of the Centre to malign the reputation of his father during whose tenure Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance was granted to the INX Media group.

He is accused of having received Rs10 lakh in kickbacks in 2007 to clear foreign investment worth Rs305 crore for INX Media, which was owned by Peter and Indrani Mukherjea, at a time when P. Chidambaram was finance minister in the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government.
