Former Union Minister P Chidambaram's petition challenging the rejection of his request for protection from arrest in the INX Media case will be heard by the Supreme Court today. The Delhi High Court had denied his request for anticipatory bail on Tuesday, after which the senior Congress leader was arrested by the CBI on Wednesday.
Today, the top court will take up his petition for protection from arrest by the Enforcement Directorate. Since he is already in CBI custody, for a reprieve he has to file a fresh petition for regular bail.
