  • After 105 days behind bars in the INX Media case, former union minister P Chidambaram will now be out on bail.

    Chidambaram walked out of Tihar jail hours after the Supreme Court granted him bail in a money laundering case linked to the INX Media.

    With options running out for the Nirbhaya convicts, their execution seems imminent. However, Tihar officials are a worried lot as the jail doesn't have a hangman. To avert the crisis, Tihar officials have unofficially started to contact other jails to inquire if they have a hangman. They are also inquiring in a few villages in Uttar Pradesh where the last hangman was from.

    Chidambaram was first arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on August 21 in the INX Media corruption case and was granted bail by the Supreme Court on October 22. He was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in the money laundering case on October 16 and is in judicial custody till November 27 under the order of a trial court.

    Chidambaram was first arrested by the CBI on August 21 in the INX Media corruption case and was granted bail by the Supreme Court on October 22. The senior Congress leader was also arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the money-laundering case on October 16 and is in judicial custody till November 27 under the order of a trial court.

    The Enforcement Directorate has sought extension of police custody of former Fortis Healthcare promoter Malvinder Singh & Sunil Godhwani, former CMD of Religare Enterprises Limited (REL) till November 28. The agency had taken both into custody on Nov 14 from Tihar, where they had been lodged due to a case filed by the Delhi Police, related to the alleged scam.

    The Enforcement Directorate (ED), in its plea, had sought permission to quiz Chidambaram from 10 am to 1 pm and 2:30 pm to 4 pm on both days, saying that some documents have to be shown to him.

    The victim's parents moved the application since the earlier two judges hearing the matter got transferred and the matter is getting adjourned continuously, the plea said. The special fast track court, set up to hear cases of sexual harassment cases exclusively, of Patiala House Court is currently vacant and no judge has been appointed till now.

    While the 74-year-old senior Congress leader has sought bail saying as the evidence is documentary and in the custody of probe agencies, he cannot tamper them, the ED has opposed his plea on the ground that he has tried to influence and threaten witnesses.
