The Supreme Court on Monday gave interim relief to former Union minister P Chidambaram from arrest. Chidambaram will not go to the Tihar jail and stay in CBI custody.
On Chidambaram’s police remand and issuance of non-bailable warrant, Sibal said, “He is a 74-year-old man, put him under house arrest, no prejudice will be caused to anyone”.
A bench of justices R Banumathi and A S Bopanna directed CBI to file its response on Chidambaram’s plea challenging the non-bailable warrant issued against him and the subsequent orders of the trial court remanding him in the CBI custody.
Chidambaram’s CBI custody is expiring today.
