Karti produced in court, CBI seeks 14 days of custodial interrogation

He was arrested in connection with INX Media case and sent to one day CBI custody by a Delhi court.

Senior advocate Abhishek Mani Singhvi, who is leading a team of lawyers for Karti, contended that in connection with the May 2017 FIR, CBI has spent roughly 22 hours with Karti in August a year ago and no fresh summons was issued to him after August 2017 till date, which shows the agency has nothing more to ask him.

Medicines are allowed only on prescription but home food is not allowed. "It is unbelievable that despite no history of cardiac problem, doctors advised him to be in the CCU", Mehta said. And CBI's counsel Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Tushar Mehta again sought 14 days of police custody of Karti Chidambaram.

Karti has been arrested in the INX Media case. All this will need time and a 14-day custody is essential for this.

He said Advantage Strategic Consultants, which is linked to alleged illegal payments, was virtually owned and controlled by Chess Management in which Karti is said to have stakes.

Under section 164 of CrPC, any Metropolitan Magistrate or Judicial Magistrate may, whether or not he has jurisdiction in the case, record any confession or statement made to him in the course of an investigation. CBI officials said the CA has given "information on wealth transfer related activities". "This is law, not vendetta". "The case is about serious corruption charges". "And thus his custody is required".

Karti's father P Chidambaram and mother Nalini Chidambaram, who are both senior advocates, were present in court and seen talking to him. He asked "is it possible to arrest a man when he returns back from London". "It is because you (CBI) want to show it to your bosses that you are doing some work".

Weather shifts again with cooler temperatures, possible snow coming
The low will dip to 31 amid blustery conditions that include a northwest wind of 21 to 23 miles per hour . Saturday night , the low will be around 42 with partly cloudy skies, according to the weather service.

Opposing the CBI's contentions, Karti Chidambaram's counsel Abhishek Manu Singhvi said that it was a bizzare case and no grounds for arrest were made out. He was produced in court after the expiry of his one-day custody. Karti Chidambaram was released only after 7.30 am in the morning. The CBI slept for six months. "It is a mistrial and they are bending rules".

According to Bar and Bench, Karti reportedly spoke to his friend in Tamil, when a CBI official asked him to speak in English.

The court's decision came after over three hours of proceedings.

"The arrest is motivated". The CBI did not summon me since August but arrested me for not cooperating.You never tested my non-cooperation.

Referring to the purported statement of Indrani Mukherjea, Singhvi accused Mehta of making selective leaks to the media.

Singhvi asked if Karti has done something illegal while being overseas, why didn't the CBI file a contempt petition before the court which allowed him to travel overseas. "With the other two invoices also, he had nothing to do", Singhvi contended.

Regarding the bribe allegation, Singhvi said Karti Chidambaram was not a director or a shareholder of Advantage Strategic company, one of the companies through which the Mukerjeas had allegedly paid the bribe.
