CBI had sought a 15 day custody of Karti Chidambaram for interrogation.

In its remand application filed in the court, the CBI claimed that sustained interrogation of Karti Chidambaram was needed to unearth the "total conspiracy" hatched in the case and also to find out the details of overseas payments allegedly received by him from INX Media as a "quid pro quo".

"Thus, Karti Chidambaram needs to be subjected to sustained interrogation for unearthing the total conspiracy hatched in the case and also to find out the details of overseas payments received by him from INX Media as a quid pro quo for influence exercised by him over the public servants to scuttle the punitive action required to be taken against M/S INX Media (P) Ltd for the illegal acts of receiving excess investment than the approved FDI and also for making of downstream investment without the FIPB approval. For this purpose, his police custody remand for a period of 15 days is considered essential," the CBI said in the court.

The duty magistrate remanded him to one-day CBI custody and asked the agency to produce Karti before the concerned judge tomorrow: news agency PTI
