Soon after the Supreme Court granted bail to former Finance Minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media money laundering case, his son Karti Chidambaram wrote on Twitter, "Phew. At last after 106 days."
Earlier on Wednesday, Karti visited Kapil Sibal's residence from where they left for the Supreme Court.
Setting aside the Delhi high court's order, the Supreme Court on Wednesday granted bail to Chidambaram, a senior Congress leader, in the INX Media money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate.
The top court said that Chidambaram should not tamper with the evidence and not influence the witnesses. The court also barred him from giving press interviews or making public statements in connection with this case.
The court directed Chidambaram to furnish a bail bond of Rs 2 lakh plus two sureties of the same amount. The Supreme Court said Chidambaram would not leave the country without prior permission of the court.
