Visa Scam: Court Asks CBI To Give Three-Day Prior Notice To Karti Chidambaram In Case Of Arrest

Special Judge M K Nagpal passed the order while dismissing his anticipatory bail plea as withdrawn.

A Delhi court on Friday directed the CBI to give a three-day prior notice to Congress MP Karti Chidambaram if it required to arrest him in connection with an alleged visa scam case.

Opposing the Anticipatory bail plea, the CBI stated that the agency will give notice before 48 hours at least if he was required to be arrested.

The court, however, directed that in case the CBI was required to arrest the accused, he needed to be given notice prior to three working days.

Noting that the accused was currently abroad, the court further directed that he shall be joining the investigation within 16 hours after he reaches India.
