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
@KapilSibal #PChidamabaram #INXMedia
@KapilSibal Sibal : We have challenged the remand. If this court does not hear it, they'll move lower court and he could be sent to Tihar. Then the court on the next date will say it has become infructuous
@KapilSibal Sibal-If you hear on the 5th, they'll send him to Tihar, it'll become infructuous. I'm myself saying put me under house arrest. Protect me till this court hears the case. Sibal emphasizes that Chidambaram is 74 years old
#PChidambaram @KapilSibal
@KapilSibal Sibal : What happens if you find the remand illegal on the 5th? What happens to my relief?
If you find it legal, send him to Tihar that day, no problem. But my relief is pending
@KapilSibal ASG says that the petition has no standing in law
#PChidambaram #INXMediaCase
@KapilSibal J Banumathi asks why can't you seek bail from the lower court.
Sibla says the special judge will reject the application. After having issued Non bailable warrant, does this Court thinks the lower court will grant bail, asks @KapilSibal
@KapilSibal ASG interjects and says why should the CBI judge reject. J Bhanumati also questions why?
Sibal : I could go and make the submission that if you reject my application, at least stay it till SC hears my case. You can ask them to maintain status quo. Just let my remedy be alive.
@KapilSibal Sibal-lower court judge said that he could send me to Tihar. If he does so, my application is infructuous
@KapilSibal Sibal continues to argue and request for SC to order that even if lower court rejects bail let there be extension of current police custody and put a stay on judicial custody
@KapilSibal J Bhanumati says she's inclined to ask appropriate court to look into plea for interim bail, and if rejected, extend police custody
@KapilSibal ASG objects. "This is not possible under law", he says
@KapilSibal The bench has ordered : Approach lower court for interim bail. If rejected, extend Police Custody for 3 days. Next hearing on Friday.
@KapilSibal Correction : Next hearing Thursday
