A Delhi court on Monday sent Karti Chidambaram to judicial custody till March 24 in the INX Media case, ANI reported.

Karti was arrested on his return from the United Kingdom at the Chennai airport on February 28 and later sent to the probe agency's custody.

The Congress earlier alleged that the probe into Karti Chidambaram is a "divisionary tactic" to take the glare away from absconder Nirav Modi and the multi-crore Punjab National Bank scam, and that the government is carrying a vendetta against Congress leaders and their relatives.

Soon after the CBI court's order allowing the plea to send him to judicial custody as it did not want custodial interrogation any more, Karti moved the Delhi High Court seeking bail, which said the matter will be heard on Tuesday. He also sought a separate cell in case Karti was sent to judicial custody. "Some of the accused related to those cases are lodged in Tihar so I apprehend a great threat to my security", he said.

The counsel had sought a separate cell for Karti Chidambaram while citing possible threats from "terrorists" lodged at Tihar jail during P Chidambaram's stint as home minister.

The apprehension raised by the senior counsel for accused can not be ignored keeping in view the social status of accused and his family, more specifically, his father, who is a former union minister.

In a related development, the Delhi High Court gave a major relief to Karti Chidambaram, directing the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is separately probing the allegations, not to arrest him till the next hearing of the case on March 20.

Opposing the security application, the CBI argued that while there may be a threat to P Chidambaram, no threat lies to Karti or his family members, as they continue to travel around the country at free will.

"Since the bail application is already fixed for filing of reply/consideration on March 15, the present application is dismissed", the court said. However, the judge directed Tihar Jail authorities to provide and ensure proper safety and security to Karti during the judicial custody. However the court rejected the plea seeking to carry books, toilettries, clothes and others.

Karti was arrested on his return from the United Kingdom in connection with an FIR lodged on May 15 previous year.

He was arrested because Indrani Mukerjea and her husband, Peter Mukerjea had testified that they did grant bribe to him to issue the clearance.
