Thursday (September 5): Though the Supreme Court refused to grant pre-arrest bail in INX media case, P. Chidambaram and his son Karti get partial relief as Delhi court grants them anticipatory bail today in Aircel-Maxis case.

Delhi court Special Judge O.P. Saini said, “In the even of their arrest, both applicants/accused namely Shree Karti P. Chidambaram and Shree P. Chidamabram shall be released on bail on their furnishing personal bond in the sum ₹1,00,000 each with one surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of investigating officer/arresting officer/Duty Magistrate.”

Granting bail he further said,”Considering the the distance of time between the commission of alleged crime and the filing of the instant application, unexplained delay in investigation, there being no possibility of the applicants/accused tampering with the evidence or threatening any witness or fleeing from justice and there being no possibility also of applicants/accused committing a similar crime again, I am satisfied that it is a fit case for grant of benefit of anticipatory bail.”
