Karti Chidambaram gets bail in INX media case

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday granted bail to Karti Chidambaram, son of former Union Finance minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, in the INX Media corruption case.

The bail was granted by Justice SP Garg

The bail was granted by Justice SP Garg.

The Delhi HC had reserved its verdict on March 16 after hearing arguments on behalf of Karti, and against him by the CBI which had opposed the grant of relief to him.

The CBI had contended that he should not be granted bail as he has already destroyed evidence in the case and was an “influential” person.

The Central Bureau of Investigation arrested Karti Chidambaram in February for allegedly taking money to facilitate Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance to INX Media in 2007 when his father was the Finance Minister in the United Progressive Alliance government.
