NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Thursday extended the interim protection of former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram in connection with the INX media case.

He has been granted interim protection from arrest till November 29.

On September 28, the court had extended his interim protection from arrest till today.

Chidambaram had filed an anticipatory bail plea seeking protection from arrest by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The Congress leader and his son, Karti, have been under the scanner of the CBI and ED in connection with the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance granted to INX Media, a venture promoted by former media baron Peter Mukerjea and Indrani Mukerjea.

The alleged irregularities took place in 2007 when Chidambaram was the Finance minister under the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

    Is this kind of protection by shielding arrest by High Court available to all citizens or only to VIPs like P Chidhambaram. It is to be recalled that an election petition challenging his election to Parliament in 2009 never saw the light till his tenure ended in 2014. A great man and honorable courts indeed. Long live Indian democracy.
