Special Judge O P Saini granted relief to the son of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram after the counsel for the Enforcement Directorate (ED) sought time to argue on Karti Chidambaram's application seeking anticipatory bail.
The submission was supported by the CBI counsel who requested the court to put up the matter for next date.
The court had on March 24 granted interim relief to Karti Chidambaram till today after considering that both the investigative agencies had sought time to file their responses on his anticipatory bail plea.
The matter pertains to grant of Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to firm M/S Global Communication Holding Services Ltd for investment in Aircel.
In September, 2015, the CBI had filed its status report regarding a probe into the FIPB approvals in the case. The agency had in June, 2016 also issued notice to A Palaniappan, director of Chess Management Services, a company promoted by Karti Chidambaram.
