Karti Chidambaram remanded in 13-day judicial custody in Inx Media case

12 days Judicial Custody for Karti Chidambaram, No Separate Prison Cell: CBI Court

Dayan Krishnan's submissions were based on the ground that since Karti's father P Chidambaram was leading the Ministry of Home Affairs at some point, it is clear that he may have made some enemies.

The CBI counsel further stated, "Under the circumstances when there is sufficient material clearly implicating the accused in this serious economic offence, it is absolutely necessary that the accused be remanded to judicial custody". CBI Special Judge Sunil Rana in his order stuck to equal treatment of prisoners, denying the request for separate jail cell and washroom as it would lead to Karti being "treated differently than other accused persons". Son of former finance minister has asked the court to allow him a separate washroom.

The CBI had both occasions complained to the court that Karti was non-cooperative during questioning. Karti's plea was that since his father dealt with various stringent penal laws like TADA, MCOCA, UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act) and NDPS (Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) Acts and many of these prisoners are facing prosecution under the same laws, he may face a threat from them. He needs to be secured in a separate prison and be given a separate bathroom.

To this, Krishnan said it was shocking that the investigating agency was objecting to Karti's security in jail and such objection also enhanced the threat perception. I am appalled. There is a mala fide intent in opposing it. Im shocked that CBI can oppose my plea for security.

The Court agreed to Karti's demand for medicines and spectacle but rejected his demand to provide him with home cook food. Now his bail plea will be heard on March 15.

Voting for Araria Lok Sabha seat and Assembly Constituencies of Bhabua & Jehanabad
The voters of Mayawatiji have deserted the BSP and have reposed their faith in Modiji, Yogi and BJP. The Bhabua assembly seat was vacated after the death of the BJP's Anand Bhushan Pandey.

He was remanded in CBI custody for three days after the investigative agency claimed it had recovered some incriminating documents and CD from the Chennai office of Advantage Strategic Pvt Ltd., a company linked to him. Bhaskararaman is now in jail due to a case filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The former Union minister's son was arrested on his return from the United Kingdom in connection with an FIR lodged on May 15 past year. The FIR alleged irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds of about Rs 305 crore in 2007 when his father was Union finance minister.

The CBI initially alleged that Karti received Rs 10 lakh as bribe for the FIPB clearance. It later revised the figure to $1 million (about Rs 6.50 crore at the current exchange rate and Rs 4.50 crore in 2007).

Karti was arrested on 28 February.
