Former finance minister and Congress leader P Chidambaram was on Wednesday night arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) from his Jor Bagh residence in New Delhi, an hour after he made a dramatic appearance at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters. He was taken to the CBI headquarters. Chidambaram appeared at a press conference almost 24 hours after going "incommunicado" in the wake of the Delhi High Court turning down his anticipatory bail plea in connection with the INX Media scam case.
The CBI has taken P Chidambaram into its custody and will be taking him to the agency headquarters in Delhi, according to reports.
