With the Cen­tral Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion’s cus­tody com­ing to an end on Fri­day, and the Delhi High Court giv­ing him pro­tec­tion from be­ing ar­rested in the same case, Karti Chi­dambaram, son of for­mer fi­nance min­is­ter P Chi­dambaram, may have fan­cied his chances of be­ing re­leased, but that wasn’t to be, as a spe­cial CBI court sent him to po­lice cus­tody for three more days on Fri­day.

NEW DELHI: With the Cen­tral Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion’s cus­tody com­ing to an end on Fri­day, and the Delhi High Court giv­ing him pro­tec­tion from be­ing ar­rested in the same case, Karti Chi­dambaram, son of for­mer fi­nance min­is­ter P Chi­dambaram, may have fan­cied his chances of be­ing re­leased, but that wasn’t to be, as a spe­cial CBI court sent him to po­lice cus­tody for three more days on Fri­day.

Karti was ar­rested by CBI last week in con­nec­tion with a bribery case in­volv­ing broad­caster INX Me­dia. Seek­ing an ex­ten­sion of Karti’s cus­tody by 6 days — he has al­ready been in cus­tody for 10 days — CBI said it needed to con­front him with his char­tered ac­count S Bhaskarara­man ,who was ar­rested by En­force­ment Direc­torate on Fe­bru­ary 16.
