PC moves Delhi HC for bail, challenges judicial remand

New Delhi: Former finance minister P Chidambaram, lodged in Tihar jail in the INX Media corruption case, moved the Delhi High Court Wednesday seeking bail claiming that the criminal proceedings against him were "mala fide" and borne out of "political vendetta".

Chidambaram has also filed another plea in the high court challenging the trial court's September 5 order remanding him to 14-day judicial custody in the case till September 19, saying it was a "completely unreasoned and non-speaking" order.

Both the petitions of the senior Congress leader have been listed for hearing on Thursday before Justice Suresh Kait.

Chidambaram, 73, who was arrested on August 21 by the CBI, did not approach the trial court and directly filed the regular bail plea in the high court.
