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.
