BREAKING: P Chidambaram gets bail

Delhi High Court granted anticipatory bail to former union minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram Thursday in the Aircel case.

For about past two weeks P Chidambaram has been in CBI custody in the INX Media case and Supreme Court has refused him protection from arrest saying it will hamper the investigation of Enforcement Directorate.

Following the decision of Delhi High Court his son tweeted, “We win some too.”

Karti continued with series of tweets and one another read, “As I have been saying it’s a non case. Been dragged into only due to political vendetta. I have no connection to Aircel Maxis or to FIPb. I had an Aircel sim though :) and in time this INX bogey will also be slayed.”

According to CBI, the Rs 3,500 crore Aircel-Maxis deal was given clearance of $800 foreign investment illegally in 2006 in the UPA government when P Chidambaram was the finance minister.

The CBI adds such approval of large sums needs to come from a committee headed by the prime minister, then Manmohan Singh.

Both ED and CBI alleges the 74-year-old senior leader of Congress party would impede the investigation if left free.
