Pramod Kumar Dubey and Arshdeep Singh said that although no summons have been issued by the ED, P. Chidambaram has an apprehension of arrest by the CBI. P. Chidambaram in his plea has said that the present case is mala fide and is only made with a political point of view to disrupt this respect, that the alleged agency is acting on the behalf of the central government to perish his reputation.

The agency has sought time to submit its response on Mr Chidambaram’s anticipatory bail plea. The agency said that in its response that P. Chidambaram is not co-operative and evasive. CBI said that “The material collected so far and the gravity of the offence which is to unfold requires custodial interrogation’’
