Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Monday accused the CBI and ED of “delaying” Aircel-Maxis cases before a Delhi court, which extended interim protection from arrest granted to him and his son Karti till March 8.

Chidambaram, who was present in person in the courtroom, requested Special Judge O P Saini to grant an early hearing on his anticipatory bail applications as well as the chargesheet filed in the cases lodged by CBI and the ED.

The ED told the court that it has asked Karti Chidambaram, an accused along with his father, to appear before it on March 5, 6, 7 and 12 for questioning in the case. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal opposed the submissions made by the CBI and ED seeking adjournment in the case and sought early hearing of his anticipatory bail application.
