Supreme Court to hear on Friday P Chidambaram’s plea seeking stay of Delhi HC order

Congress leader P Chidambaram, facing threat of arrest, failed on Wednesday to get protection from the Supreme Court which decided to hear on Friday his petition seeking stay on the Delhi High Court order that had dismissed his anticipatory bail plea. Registrar (Judicial) informed Chidambarams lawyer that Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has listed the matter for hearing on Friday. Soon after getting the message from Registrar (Judicial), team of lawyers led by senior advocate Kapil Sibal had short deliberation in the consultation room after which they left the apex court.
