NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today remanded back to the Madras High Court the pleas relating to issuance of two Look Out Circulars (LOC) against Karti Chidambaram, son of former Union Minister P Chidambaram, and others in a corruption case.

The top court, which had stayed the High Court’s order of August 10 last year keeping at abeyance the LOCs issued on June 16 and July 28 last year against Karti and others in the case, however made it clear that its interim order “shall continue till the matter is finally disposed of”.

“The (four) writ petitions …, challenging the Look Out Circulars of June 16, 2017 and July 18, 2017, be decided by the Division Bench presided over by the Chief Justice of the High Court of Madras. (AGENCIES)
