Former Union Minister P Chidambaram was taken into custody by CBI on Wednesday, 21 August after investigating agencies ED and CBI reached his residence.
Earlier, high drama ensued as a CBI team scaled walls to enter the premises.
Earlier, Chidambaram appeared in a press conference at AICC headquarters after ED and CBI issued a lookout notice against him.
He claimed that the ED and the CBI have not filed any chargesheet against him or any member of his family.
Chidambaram is likely to be produced before the CBI Rouse Avenue Court on Thursday.
Reacting on the proceedings by the investigating agencies, Karti Chidambaram said, “This is a totally politically motivated witch hunt.”
Amid the frenetic events at Chidambaram’s residence, his son Karti tweeted saying, “The drama and spectacle being enacted by the agencies is to simply sensationalise and satisfy the voyeuristic pleasure of some.”
