Karti Chidambaram sent to CBI custody for 3 more days

INX Media case CBI gets three-day custody of Karti Chidambaram till March 12

The agency is likely to move another application seeking the court's direction to issue production warrant against Indrani Mukerjea, former media baron who is a witness in the money laundering case and now behind bars in a murder case, and Chidambaram's chartered accountant S Bhaskaraman.

This means that if the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) fails to secure an extension of Karti Chidambaram's police custody on Friday from the CBI court, ED can not proceed to arrest him.

Mehta said he was going to seek more time for filing a reply on the bail plea of Karti in the CBI court case against him.

Karti's counsel has also alleged that he was kept in a separate room during his custody remand of the CBI starting from February 28 to March 6.

While granting the protection, the court said that it was yet to decide the Constitutional validity of section 19 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act which deals with the power of arrest of the ED under the statute.

Mr. Chidambaram was present in the courtroom throughout the hearing. They are inventing one. He said the CD has been sent to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) for examination.

India's top court upholds passive euthanasia with guidelines
The 2011 judgement had put the onus on doctors to petition to withdraw life support, under the supervision of the courts. It has also given sanction to 'Passive Euthanasia' and 'Living Will' and thereby issued guidelines in this regard.

Earlier in the day, the Delhi High Court granted him interim relief from arrest by the Enforcement Directorate till March 20.

However, Singhvi said it was "astonishing" that they found the address of ASPL, which is the main accused firm in the matter, only two days ago but the case was 10 years old.

The bench, which also comprised Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, asked Mehta as "What if Karti is arrested by ED as soon as he is released by CBI from its custody?" "It is his constitutional right", Mehta said, adding that the court may quash the proceedings if it so wished, but it should not allow him to withdraw the petition. "The CBI has to justify remand every day and every minute", Singhvi said on behalf of Karti.

"For one year, the CBI can not find the registered office".

Besides, Directorate of Enforcement (ED) had registered a money laundering case against Karti in May 2017 for his role in facilitating clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) for INX Media Ltd and its Directors, Peter and Indrani Mukerjea both accused in the murder of Sheena Bora and others.

Karti's arrest was made possible after the testimony by Indrani and Peter Mukerjea, who confessed of giving him bribe of Rs 7 Lakh to help the clearance of FIPB.
