New Delhi: A Delhi court has dismissed former finance minister P Chidambaram’s plea to surrender in INX media money laundering case.
Chidambaram is currently lodged in Tihar jail in the INX Media corruption case. The Special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar junked his plea in this regard.
The Enforcement Directorate had on Thursday told the court that Chidambaram’s arrest was necessary in the INX Media money laundering case. Chidambaram’s counsel had contended that the ED’s submission is mala fide and intended to make him suffer.
Chidambaram, 73, is already in judicial custody in the INX Media corruption case being probed by the CBI.
