New Delhi: Congress leader P Chidambaram has received a major setback in the INX media case. The ED has opposed his plea on the ground that he had tried to influence and threaten witnesses. Chidambaram gets a big blow by Delhi High Court, bail plea rejected in public interest.
Justice Suresh Kaath of the Delhi High Court said in his order, If Chidambaram is granted bail on this stage, then It will be difficult for the investigating agency to prove shell companies and money trail, including 70 benami bank accounts, so the bail application is rejected in public interest. Due to this economic crime, the country suffered financially.
During the hearing, the High Court also said that if Chidambaram is granted bail in this case, it will send a wrong message in the society. Congress leader and former Union Minister P Chindabaram has been in police custody since August 21. Although Chidambaram has already got bail from the SC in the case related to CBI, but today he received a setback from Delhi High Court.
