High Court seeks CBI response on Karti s bail plea

New Delhi March 13 (IANS) Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file reply on the bail plea of senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram s son Karti Chidambaram in the INX Media corruption case.



Justice S.P. Garg also sought a status report from the probe agency and listed the matter for March 16 for further hearing.

The direction came after Karti s counsel and senior advocate Kapil Sibal told the court that he was going to withdraw the bail plea from the trial court.

Sibal told the court that he moved the bail plea of his client on March 5 but to date no hearing had taken place in the Special CBI Court in Patiala House Courts Complex.

The special court on Monday sent Karti Chidambaram to judicial custody till March 24.

Karti Chidambaram was arrested in February for allegedly taking money to facilitate Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media in 2007 when his father was Finance Minister in the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.
