Special Judge O P Saini took strong objection to the agencies seeking repeated adjournments, saying "things have become very embarrassing for me".

The court then reserved order on Chidambarams' anticipatory bail application for September 3, extending the interim protection from arrest to them till then.

It, however, gave liberty to CBI and ED to argue anytime before that date.

"I do not find any merit in the application of agencies to adjourn the matter. Why you (CBI, ED) asking adjournments day after day? You are making such arguments for a year. Thing have become very embarrassing for me. You have been seeking adjournment day after day. Put up for orders for 3 September. They can argue before that whenever they may argue," the judge said.

The court said that both the matters: Aircel Maxis and INX Media, were different.

On agencies' argument that both cases involved FIPB approvals, the court said there were hundreds were such matters.
