Karti Chidambaram sent to Tihar till March 24

After the hearing of arguments from both sides, Karti was sent to custody for 12 days till March 24 and also, his demand for home food was rejected by the court. The bench also noted that despite tweets by others in response to the innuendo and clarifying the correct position, "he (editor) cared not to withdraw the mischievous and false tweet".

The Congress earlier alleged that the probe into Karti Chidambaram is a "divisionary tactic" to take the glare away from absconder Nirav Modi and the multi-crore Punjab National Bank scam, and that the government is carrying a vendetta against Congress leaders and their relatives. We have contemplated a situation and brought it to the court's notice.

Erdogan asked. "We came in response to the calls on Afghanistan, Somalia and the Balkans, and now I am making the call, let's go to Syria.


Opposing the security application, the CBI argued that while there may be a threat to P Chidambaram, no threat lies to Karti or his family members, as they continue to travel around the country at free will. He said such social media activity should not be ignored but a stern message sent.

In his application, Karti's counsel Dayan Krishan had said that "he is the son of former union home minister and many terrorists have been prosecuted during his (P Chidambaram) tenure and there is a clear threat perception to Karti". I can not be sent to a common bathroom. "However, only keeping in view the fact of social status of the accused and his father, he can not be treated differently from other accused persons and can not be allowed to be kept in a separate room", he held, rejecting Karti's contention of a "great fear" that "something was going to happen" to him. The organisation investigating me should be concerned about my security. Can it be denied??

Asia, Middle East lead rising trends in arms imports
In 2013-17, Saudi Arabia was the world's second largest arms importer, behind India, with arms imports increasing by 225 percent. The U.S. continues to dominate arms exports, and it has accounted for 34 percent of total arms exports over the past five years.


In the application submitted in Patiala House Court, the Central Bureau of Investigation has mentioned that Karti in the police custody had been evasive and non-cooperative. The CBI had initially alleged that Karti Chidambaram received Rs 10 lakh as bribe for facilitating Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media. It, however, later revised the figure to United States dollars 1 million (about Rs 6.50 crore at the current exchange rate and Rs 4.50 crore in 2007).

Karti was arrested by the CBI on February 28 in connection with the FIR lodged on May 15, 2017, alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds to the tune of about Rs 305 crore in 2007 when his father was the Union Finance Minister.
