CBI gets Karti Chidambaram's custody for 3 more daysMarch 09, 2018 16:59
A court in Delhi today extended Karti Chidambaram's CBI custody by another three days.
Karti, who is being investigated in connection to the INX Media case, has already been in CBI remand for the last nine days out of the 15 days prescribed under law.
The agency had sought Karti's custody for six additional days, citing "new incriminating materials" as grounds to interrogate him further.
While seeking extension of his custodial interrogation for six more days, Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, said that a CD has been recovered in connection with the case which needed to be sent to Central Forensic Science Laboratory for examination.
The ASG said that new incriminating materials have been found and he has to be confronted with them. However, senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, who is the party colleague of P Chidambaram, opposed any further custodial interrogation of Karti.
