INX Media: Chidambaram applies for bail plea in Delhi High Court
New Delhi: Former finance minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Wednesday moved the Delhi High Court seeking bail in the INX Media case.

In his bail plea, Chidambaram challenged his judicial custody, terming his arrest "illegal". He has sought bail on the grounds that no other accused in the INX Media case has been arrested. Chidambaram also said in his bail plea that he had already been interrogated and hence there was no rationale in arresting him.
