There was high drama in Delhi last evening as former Minister P Chidambaram's anticipatory bail application by Delhi High Court was rejected and teams of CBI and ED reached his the Jor Bagh residence on the lookout for him.After the CBI’s team left the residence of the senior Congress leader, a team of Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials reached his residence to arrest him in the INX Media case. Late midnight, Arshdeep Singh Khurana, P Chidambaram's lawyer, wrote to CBI after CBI had put up a notice outside Chidambaram's residence.
He wrote, "I am instructed to state that your notice fails to mention the provision of law under which my client has been issued a notice to appear within 2 hours. Furthermore, my client is exercising the rights available to him in law & had approached the Supreme Court on August 20 seeking urgent reliefs in respect of the order dismissing his anticipatory bail (in INX media case).
He has been permitted by SC to mention the urgent Special Leave Petition against the order before Court at 10:30 am today. I, therefore, request you not to take any coercive action against my client till then & await the hearing".
