Proceedings begin.

CBI Court records P Chidambaram's presence as an accused post cognizance of CBI Chargesheet.

Investigating Officer informs Court that all the requisite documents would be supplied.
SG Tushar Mehta begins submissions for ED, claims ED case is different from the CBI case.

ED is investigating the offence of money laundering through different channels which is not being probed by CBI, Mehta.
Chidambaram has been confronted with documents showing beneficial ownership of his family members..,Mehta.

Chidambaram was to be confronted with 65 questions with "clinching evidence" but his pace of answering was slow, Mehta.
Chidambaram needs to be confronted with more documentary evidence and statements of other persons which reveal certain discrepancies, Mehta.

ED seeks extension of P Chidambaram's custody by 7 days.
We have recorded the statement of P Chidambaram in terms of Sec 50 PMLA, Mehta.
Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal for P Chidambaram begins.

They never confronted Chidambaram with any witness ever, not even during this period of remand. There is no basis for extension of remand, Sibal.
He is very seriously ill. He has severe stomach pain. He has acute pain. Doctors have not been able to take care of him, Sibal.

I have the entire medical record. He has been attended to medically, Mehta.

Sibal requests that Chidambaram be taken to Hyderabad for treatment.
The doctor can be called here, Judge.

Something has been shown to us orally...what happens to a person when he complains of some medical issue. The best medical facilities are in Delhi, Mehta remarks as he objects to the specific request of Chidambaram be taken to Hyderabad.
Court asks Mehta why Chidambaram was not confronted with witnesses during the period of custody.
Judge: Did you not do it because you wanted to record his statement first?

Mehta: Yes.

Judge: And you kept on recording it for 5 day?
Judge goes through the remand application and observes that "at this pace even 50 days would be less" for Enforcement Directorate.

The pace of the Investigating Agency is excellent, Mehta.
Judge: Why is his custodial interrogation required to confront him with evidence?

It would be a serious miscarriage of justice if my investigation is curtailed, Mehta
Sibal prays that Chidambaram be released on interim bail for two days in case the request to send him to Hyderabad is not allowed.
We can send him to AIIMS, Mehta.

It has become worse he is saying. Do you think he's lying, Sibal.
Order reserved.
CBI Court extends P Chidambaram's ED remand in INX Media case till October 30.
