They arrested my dad to divert peoples attention: Karti Chidambaram

Karti Chidambaram, the son of former Union Minister P Chidambaram and a Member of Parliament, has said that his father has been arrested just to divert people's attention from issues pertaining to the annulment of Article 370.  

"It's just a diversionary tactic by the government, which is playing vendetta politics against my father," Karti said.  PC has been vociferous in his condemnation of the abrogation of the Article.  

Soon after PC was whisked away by CBI sleuths from his residence in Delhi, Karti spoke to the media and said that there is no charge-sheet in place till today against PC and him in the INX Media case.  "The events pertaining to this case happened in 2008.  They filed an FIR in 2017.  To this day, there is no charge-sheet in place.  This is nothing but harassment," Karti added.

Just before his arrest, PC held a press conference at AICC headquarters and said that his conscience is clear.  Bail plea will be heard by the Supreme Court on Friday.
