INX Media case: Delhi court extends Chidambaram's judicial custody till December 11
A Delhi court on Wednesday extended the judicial custody of former finance minister P. Chidambaram till December 11 in connection with the INX Media money-laundering case lodged by the Enforcement Directorate.
Special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar passed the order after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) sought extension of Chidambaram's judicial custody by 14 days saying that the probe is on.
The counsel for the 74-year old senior Congress leader did not oppose ED's plea.
Earlier in the day, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and party's general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra met the senior Congress leader at Tihar Jail.
Karti Chidambaram, who was also present during the meeting, said with the visit of Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, it is clear that the Congress party is with him.
The senior Congress leader was first arrested by the CBI on August 21 in the INX Media case and was granted bail by the Supreme Court on October 22.
He was arrested by the ED in the money-laundering case on October 16 and is in judicial custody till November 27 under the order of a trial court.
