P Chidambaram’s custody to extend till September 2

New Delhi | Former Union Minister P Chidambaram would be staying in CBI custody till September 2, after he was arrested in the INX Media case.

CBI had sought for an extension in his custodial interrogation for five more days.

He was produced before Special Judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar on expiry of his 4-day CBI custody.

P Chidambaram has already undergone custodial interrogation for eight days since he was arrested.

Representing the CBI, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) KM Nataraj had argued in the court that P Chidambaram was partially interrogated and was required to be confronted with further documents.

When the Justice asked for reason behind more days in custody, the ASG said the documents were voluminous.

To this, the judge said, “You were aware of the volume of documents, why did you ask for only five days custody for the first time, Second time also you asked for five days only. Why this approach.”
