Chidambaram makes dramatic appearance at Congress HQ; asks probe agencies to respect law

NEW DELHI: Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram, wanted in a money laundering case, made a dramatic appearance at a press conference in the Congress headquarters on Wednesday evening, and asked probe agencies to “respect” the law and wait till Friday when the Supreme Court hears his bail plea.

Facing arrest after Supreme Court refused to hear his urgent plea for bail in the INX media case, Chidambaram put up a strong defence of himself and his family members, saying none of them has been accused of any offense by the probe agencies.

“I am aghast that I was accused of hiding from the law,” he said rejecting allegations that he was evading investigating agencies. (AGENCIES)
