On Wednesday, it may be recalled that Chidambaram had failed to get an urgent hearing in the Supreme Court. His legal team was however informed that the matter was listed for hearing on Friday by the Chief Justice of India.

Chidambaram has claimed that his plea was erroneously rejected by the High Court.

There is no allegation that the petitioner is likely to flee or that the petitioner is likely to influence the witness or tamper with the evidence, he said in his plea.

He further said that the High Court had ignored the fact that the petitioner simply approved the unanimous recommendations of the FIPB, which was chaired by the Secretary, Economic Affairs.
