The Delhi High Court on Thursday sought the CBI's response on a plea of former finance minister P. Chidambaram, lodged in Tihar Jail in the INX Media corruption case, seeking bail in the matter.

Justice Suresh Kait issued a notice to the CBI on Chidambaram's bail plea in which he has claimed that it was the case of "political vendetta".

The 73-year old-Congress leader also withdrew from the Delhi High Court his plea challenging the trial court's order remanding him to judicial custody till September 19.

The Delhi High Court listed the matter for further hearing on September 23.
