The big news CBI seeks custody of Karti Chidambaram in INX Media case and 9 other top stories

While the judge permitted the parents to talk to Karti in the presence of the investigating officer during the brief break before passing the order on giving five-day custody of Karti to CBI, he disallowed Karti's request for home-cooked food.

The invoices were drawn ASCPL, its Singapore subsidiary, another associate company Northstar Software Solutions Pvt Ltd and Geben Trading Ltd. Copies of invoices with Peter's signature were recovered from INX Media also.

The Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate may open more cases against Karti Chidambaram, the son of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram, The Indian Express quoted unidentified officials as saying on Friday. "14 days is the minimum time required to keep him in custody", Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta contended.

On Thursday, the senior Congress leader put his hand on his son's shoulder with his wife Nalini Chidambaram who was already in the court looking on.

President loses his fourth communications chief as ex-model Hicks to resign
Hicks was the fifth person designated as communications director and the third to hold the job on a non-interim basis. But Trump still talks regularly to people like Reince and Corey, so Hicks could remain an important sounding board.

The Congress party has alleged political vendetta in Karti's arrest. He said the agency had questioned Karti last August but thereafter issued no fresh summons, suggesting it had nothing more to ask him. He further said that every allegation will be answered to befittingly.

He found it odd that a decade after the alleged bribery, a murder accused had chose to make a "confession" that suited the government only too well. "The confession needs corroboration but the CBI has provided none", Singhvi said. Their statement is admissible in court as it was recorded before a CBI magistrate under 164 CrPC. Subsequently, they met Karti at Delhi's Hyatt hotel, where he allegedly demanded a payment of 1 million dollars.

Singhvi questioned the confessional statement by Indrani, stating that the "confession-maker was being prosecuted by the CBI" and added that "to suit her masters (CBI), Indrani had made the statement 10 years after the alleged meeting". The CBI detectives were quick to pounce on him at the Chennai airport before bringing him to Delhi.

"There are very shocking evidences of what Karti did when he went overseas", he said, adding that "when he went overseas, he closed bank accounts in which funds were received". The CBI did not summon me (Karti) since August but arrested me for not cooperating.
