After 106 days Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram gets bail in INX media case
On Wednesday the Supreme Court has granted bail to P Chidambaram in ED’s case in the INX media case after the Congress leader spent 105 days since August 21 when he was arrested.
The supreme court today heard the former Union minister P Chidambaram's plea seeking bail in the INX Media corruption case. Chidambaram has been lodged at the Tihar Jail since August 21 when CBI arrested him in connection with the INX Media case.
While granting bail to Chidambaram, the Supreme Court on Wednesday said the gravity of offences need to be adjudged by facts and circumstances of every case. The court said, "Economic offences are grave offences. Courts have to be sensitive to the nature of the case."
A bench headed by Justice R Banumathi had on November 28 reserved judgment on the appeal filed by Chidambaram. The senior Congress leader had challenged the November 15 verdict of the Delhi High Court denying him bail in the INX Media case.
