The Supreme court has refused to give interim relief to Karti Chidambaram in relation to the INX media scam. Another hearing is going to be held on March 8 2018. The court has been adjourned until 2 PM. Karti was arrested previous week at the Chennai airport, because of the confession made by Indrani Mukerjea, that she had paid him bribe to help his organization. Yesterday, when confronted with him in Mumbai’s Byculla jail, she repeated, word to word, that P. Chidambaram had requested a bribe from her, and that she’d delivered it. Karti was able to be meet his father and mother when he arrived at the court.
CBI has also asked the court to extend the custody of Karti for nine days, which is going to expire today. All the days that he has been in the custody, Karti has been questioned by the CBI authorities about his involvement in the INX media case.
INX media case is one of the most controversial and complex case, as the two heads of the organization, Indrani Mukerjea and her husband, Peter Mukerjea have also been charged with the murder of their daughter, Sheena Bora. It is yet to be decided when that case is going to be resolved. The court is going to decide on the plea at 4:30 PM.
