P Chidambaram sent to 4 Days CBI custody
Reportedly the CBI has expanded the probe against former finance minister P chidambaram, bringing under its ambit foreign investment clearances given to companies other than INX media during his tenure. Meanwhile the CBI suspects that Chidamabaram and his son Karti also received kickbacks from other companies to facilitate foreign investment clearances through the FIPB route which necessitates the former minister's custodial interrogation.
Meanwhile Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, G Kishan Reddy has said that the case against chidambaram will take its own course of action. Perhaps the Union Minister condemned the comments of the congress, claiming that the BJP is indulging in vendetta politics. Further Kishan Reddy said that there is no role of the government or the BJP with regard to chidambaram’s arrest.
Moreover a CBI spokesperson earlier said chidambaram was arrested on the basis of a warrant issued by a competent court. Sources said after his arrest, doctors from the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital conducted his medical examination at the CBI headquarters. chidambaram was kept overnight in the No. 5 suite of the CBI Guest House on the ground floor of the agency headquarters. CBI Got chidambaram's Custody because allegations against chidambaram are serious, case requires in-depth and detailed investigation, money trail needs to be ascertained, enormity of money require in-depth probe and custodial interrogation may be useful and fruitful.
