SC extends interim protection from arrest to Chidambaram, hearing to continue on 29 August
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta cited the Supreme Court's judgment in the Bhima Koregaon case on a petition filed by Romila Thapar and Others. Mehta points out that in that case too, the case diary was placed before the Court. “As a matter of practice, courts look into case diaries to satisfy their judicial conscience,” he argued.
The Bench rises for the day, directing Mehta to continue his arguments on behalf of the ED on 29 August, 11 am.
Interim protection from arrest to P Chidambaram extended till Thursday.
