SC Refuses Anticipatory Bail to Chidambaram

The Supreme Court, on Thursday 5 September, denied an anticipatory bail to P Chidambaram in the case registered by the Enforcement Directorate, after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) produced the materials collected by it to the court in a sealed cover. The court said that the investigating agency will be exposing the evidence by producing it before the accused first.

"Production of transcripts of the accused's interrogation is within the domain of the investigating officer," the Court said.

The SC bench also said that Anticipatory bail cannot be granted as a matter of right.

It said that the grant of anticipatory bail at initial stages may hinder with the ongoing investigations.

“We are of the view that this is not a fit case for grant of anticipatory bail.”
