Delhi High Court displeased by scribe's 'mischievous' tweets in Karti Chidambaram case

Karti, a son of senior Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram, was arrested on February 28 by the CBI and has been in its custody since.

Special CBI judge Sunil Rana said the social status of the accused can not be the basis for a separate prison.

The court also rejected Karti Chidambaram's plea seeking allotment of a separate prison in Tihar Jail saying that in view of social status of the accused and his father, he can not be treated different from the other accused.

The CBI made out its case for 15 day judicial custody of Karti Chidambaram saying that the accused has not been cooperating with the investigating agency and was "non cooperative and evasive" through out the period of his questioning during police remand. "Some of the accused related to those cases are lodged in Tihar so I apprehend a great threat to my security", he said.

The counsel had sought a separate cell for Karti Chidambaram while citing possible threats from "terrorists" lodged at Tihar jail during P Chidambaram's stint as home minister.

Defence counsels Dayan Krishnan and Mohit Mathur told the court that Karti Chidambaram's father has dealt with various stringent penal laws such as TADA, MCOCA, Unlawful (Activities) Prevention Act and NDPS Act. Karti will be now kept in remand till March 24.

However, the court directed the lock-up in-charge and jail superintendent of Tihar Jail to provide and ensure proper safety and security to accused during the judicial custody as per rules.

It also said his bail plea would be heard on March 15 as scheduled.

Dr Drabu recently during his visit to the national capital has allegedly said that Kashmir is not a political but social issue. Drabu made the statement at an event titled "Kashmir: The way forward" in New Delhi on March 10.

The Court, however, dismissed Karti's plea for early hearing of his bail application. However the court rejected the plea seeking to carry books, toilettries, clothes and others.

As per reports, the CBI had initially alleged that Karti received Rs 10 lakh as bribe for the FIPB clearance.

Meanwhile, Karti's CA S Bhaskararaman, who is now in jail in a case filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), has moved the court for anticipatory bail in the CBI case of INX Media.

Karti Chidambaram was arrested last month for allegedly taking money to facilitate Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media in 2007 when his father was the Finance Minister in the UPA government.
