New Delhi : The Supreme Court will pronounce its verdict on Wednesday on former Union finance minister P Chidambaram’s bail plea in the INX Media case lodged by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

A bench of justices R Banumathi, AS Bopanna and Hrishikesh Roy will decide whether the Congress leader’s incarceration of 105 days will come to an end. The verdict will be pronounced at 10.30 am in courtroom 5 of the apex court. Chidambaram, who was arrested by the Central Bureau o Investigation (CBI) on August 21 in the INX Media case, was initially in police custody and was subsequently remanded to judicial custody and sent to Tihar jail.


He was granted bail by the Supreme Court in the CBI case on October 22. The ED arrested him before that for separate offences under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act in relation to the same case. Bail in the ED case was rejected by Delhi high court on November 15. Chidambaram then appealed against that Delhi high court judgment to the Supreme Court.

Chidambaram has questioned the rationale of the Delhi high court judgment in rejecting his bail plea. The high court in its judgment had rejected the arguments of the ED on theso-called triple test for granting bail. As per the test, the grant of bail rests on whether the accused is a flight risk, whether he would tamper with evidence or influence witnesses
