Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram was unable to get immediate relief from the Supreme Court on Wednesday as his plea seeking interim relief against the Delhi High Court order was referred to Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.

Senior advocate Kapil Sibal mentioned the matter for grant of interim protection from arrest till the case is heard by the apex court.

A three-judge bench headed by Justice NV Ramana sent the file of P Chidambaram’s plea to Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi to pass the order on the listing of the case.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta opposed the plea of Chidambaram and said this is a case of money laundering of monumental magnitude.

CJI Gogoi, however, had commenced hearing in the Ayodhya dispute case due to which Chidambaram’s counsel Sibal was unable to mention the matter before him for urgent hearing.

The Congress leader’s lawyers moved the apex court against Tuesday’s Delhi High Court order regarding cases filed by the CBI and the ED related to the alleged INX Media scam.
