New Delhi: The Supreme Court has ruled that former Union Minister P Chidambaram cannot be arrested by the Enforcement Department till tomorrow.
During hearing on Tuesday in the top court Chidambaram’s legal team argued that the ED case against him does not stand.
Chidambaram was questioned in the INX Media case on three occasions. Appearing on his behalf, senior advocate and party colleague Kapil Sibal asked a bench of Justices R Banumathi and AS Bopanna to order the agency to produce the transcripts of the questioning conducted on December 19, January 1 and 21.
According to reports, the section on conspiracy in the PMLA Act (Prevention of Money Laundering Act) didn’t exist for the time when the alleged offences took place.
