Chidambaram To Be Arrested by ED in INX Media Case


Former Union Minister P Chidambaram will be arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday after a special court in Delhi agreed to the agency’s request for the custodial interrogation of the 74-year old who has been in Tihar jail since September 5 in the INX Media case.

The agency had moved two applications yesterday which accuse him of money laundering in the same case to formally arrest Chidambaram and seek his custody.

Two options have been given to the agency by the court- to question Chidambaram at the court premises for half an hour and then move application for custody and sending him to Tihar jail for now and arresting him from there.

The agency also settled for the second option, Chidambaram will be arrested in the morning and he will be produced in the court around 4 pm when the agency applies for his custody.
