Delhi high court grants bail to Karti Chidambram

New Delhi: Justice S P Garg of Delhi HC today granted bail to Karti Chidambram in the INX Media money laundering case. On March 16, the court had reserved its verdict after hearing arguments from both ,Karti's counsel and CBI advocate who opposed the grant of bail to him. Karti had been in judicial custody since March 12.Earlier the high court had provided him protection against arrest from Enforcement Directorate in money laundering case.

The CBI counsel had argued that he should not be granted bail as he has already destroyed evidence in the case and was an "influential" person.

Karti's counsel contended that no case under the Prevention of Corruption Act was made out against him since the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had neither questioned any public servant, nor made them an accused in the matter.

His lawyers also denied allegations of tampering with evidence and added that when the CBI had not sought his further custodial interrogation, why should  he be kept in judicial custody.

They had also said that no one else has been arrested in the case and what the CBI has done is to is to put Karti behind bars.
