#INXMedia: Supreme Court judgment on former Union Minister P Chidambaram's bail plea in cases filed by Enforcement Directorate at 10.30 AM today. @htTweets
Chidambaram's arguments:

1. High court had cleared Chidambaram of the triple test for bail, yet denied him bail on the ground that offence alleged was grave. Gravity of offence can be ground to deny bail only in extraordinary cases like terrorist, habitual offender etc.
2. No document or evidence linking Chidambaram to the alleged offence. Only reason he is being portrayed as kingpin is he is Karti Chidambaram's father.

#INXMedia: Sibal narrating the facts of the case.
#INXMedia: ED said in their remand application that I (P Chidambaram) was trying to influence witnesses. I was in their custody. So their allegation is I was trying to influence witnesses from ED office when I did not even have a phone, argues Kapil Sibal.

SG informs Court that chargesheet has been filed against @PChidambaram_IN Karti and officials. Says it was to be done by Oct 20, which would be in tune with the 60 day deadline of filing it
@PChidambaram_IN SG- unlike Chidambaram's lawyers, I'm not experienced enough to conclude my arguments in 15 mins. I will take a little more time
#PChidambaram #INXMediaCase
Sibal- what's the point of dragging our experience into this. He should argue on points of bail. We knew they were keeping him so chargesheet could be filed. We had told your lordships. @KapilSibal

SG- There are 15 accused in chargesheet.

#INXMediaCase: Supreme Court begins hearing the petition filed by @PChidambaram_IN challenging the decision of Delhi High Court denying him bail in the case registered by the CBI.

CBI seeks adjournment of the case till tomorrow. Court refuses the request and commences hearing
Senior Counsel Kapil Sibal begins arguing on behalf of P Chidambaram. Reads out portions of the High Court judgment which said that Chidambaram was not at flight risk nor could he have tampered with evidence.

Bail was denied on the ground that it cannot be ruled out that Chidambaram may influence witnesses. This is a presumption, Sibal

Hearing begins before SC bench of Justices Banumathi and Bopanna.
ASG NK Nataraj for CBI asks for the matter to be heard tomorrow
Kapil Sibal for Chidambaram- it will become infructuous
Kapil Sibal- either grant him interim bail or put him under house arrest until the matter is heard. Otherwise if he's sent to Tihar, it won't be fair
#PChidambaram #inxmediascam
Sibal- The issuance of non bailable warrant is what we contest. How do they put out a notice at midnight and give me 2 hrs notice. I replied at 1.10am and still they issued a nbw stating that I'm absconding

INX Media: Hearing in the plea challenging Delhi High Court order denying anticipatory bail to P Chidambaram begins.

Justice Banumathi suggests that as far as the CBI is concerned, it has been rendered infructuous.

Sibal opposes and says that the matter was pending when the arrest was made
"I have a right to be heard"

The SC order was for hearing, not listing. I was not given a hearing. I was entitled to anticipatory bail and I should have been heard, Sibal
