All eyes on ex-FM Chidambaram

All eyes on ex-FM Chidambaram

Former finance minister P Chidambaram is likely to face arrest in INX Media case which is being probed by CBI. On Tuesday, the Delhi High Court has declined Chidambaram to give an anticipatory bail and so CBI reached his residence in the national capital to arrest him. However, Chidambaram went missing ever since his bail was rejected and the legal team of his approached the Supreme Court.

The bail petition will come for hearing today and all eyes are on Chidambaram. If the Supreme Court too denies bail, then the ex-FM will have no other options rather than to surrender before the CBI. But if he continues to stay hidden, Chidambaram will have to face more troubles.

It's a like a full circle for Chidambaram and Amit Shah. Back in 2010 when Chidambaram was the Union Home Minister, he got current Home Minister Amit Shah arrested in an alleged fake encounter case. After nine long years, Amit Shah is in Chidambaram's position while the latter is on the run for bail in an alleged financial scam.
