P Chidambaram has moved an application under section 482 of Criminal Procedure Code, before the Delhi High Court, in order to challenge the CBI court's order dated 05.09.2019 which subjected him to a judicial custody of 14 days.
The Application puts forward the following grounds to set aside the order of the trial court:
Earlier, CBI Court subjected P Chidambaram to judicial custody of 14 days till September 09 on grounds that the charges against him reflected a serious offence and there was a possibility of tampering with evidence.
It also argued in the application that Chidambaram is politically persecuted for being a political opponent of the party in power and it is a clear case of political vendetta.
Moreover, an instant criminal proceeding is mala fide and is borne out of political vendetta, and that the Investigating Agency is acting at the behest of the Central Government, which wants to malign the untainted and unimpeachable reputation of the Petitioner.
