The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notice to Enforcement Directorate (ED) on former finance minister P Chidambaram’s bail petition.
The bench of the court headed by Justice R Banumathi asked the probe agency to file a fresh affidavit. The case will be next heard on November 26.
The ED was represented by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta who told the court that a response will be filed by November 25. Chidambaram had approached the top court on Monday after the Delhi high court denied him bail last week.
In his plea before a bench led by Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde on Tuesday, senior lawyer Kapil Sibal had requested the court hear Chidambaram’s plea early seeing that he has been in jail for 90 days.
