NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has dismissed the plea filed by the CBI seeking review of its verdict granting bail to former finance minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media corruption case.
The apex court had on October 22 last year granted bail to Chidambaram in the case saying he was neither a “flight risk” nor was there a possibility of “his abscondence from the trial”.
A bench headed by Justice R Banumathi rejected the review plea filed by the CBI saying the last year verdict does not suffer from any error apparent warranting its reconsideration.
“Application for oral hearing the review petition in open court is rejected. We have perused the review petition and the connected papers carefully and are convinced that the order, of which review has been sought, does not suffer from any error apparent warranting its reconsideration,” the bench, also comprising justices A S Bopanna and Hrishikesh Roy, said.
