New Delhi, September 5, 2019:

Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram has been sent to Tihar jail till September 19 in relation to the INX Media case after a Delhi Court declined to accept his bail plea.

P Chidambaram’s team tried every possible means to keep him out of Tihar jail and even offered his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate which could take him into custody to question him.

Earlier, the Supreme Court had rejected his request for an anticipatory bail in the INX Media case being investigated by the ED.

The Enforcement Directorate can arrest him any time as it has the favour of the apex court.

Special Judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar ruled in favor of sending Chidambaram to Tihar.

It is to be mentioned that Chidambaram had earlier spent 15 days in custody of the CBI.
