New Delhi, Sept 13: A Delhi court on Friday dismissed a plea by former finance minister P Chidambaram seeking to surrender in the money laundering case.
Special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar rejected his plea.
The Enforcement Directorate had on Thursday told the court that Chidambaram's arrest was necessary in the INX Media money laundering case and it will do so at an appropriate time.
Chidambaram's counsel had contended that the ED's submission is mala fide and intended to make him suffer.
Chidambaram, 73, is already in judicial custody in the INX Media case in Tihar jail. He is being probed by the CBI.
