Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram, arrested on Wednesday in a corruption investigation, began the day with a series of setbacks. His petition challenging his CBI custody was not listed for a hearing at the Supreme Court today. The court told Mr Chidambaram's lawyer Kapil Sibal that it would be listed after "orders from Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi". The court also refused to take up his petition requesting protection from arrest by the CBI - filed on Wednesday - saying it was "infructuous" now since he had since been arrested. He court is now hearing Mr Chidambaram's petition for protection from arrest by the Enforcement Directorate.
