New Delhi: Karti Chidambaram, son of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram who was arrested and sent to Delhi's Tihar jail for a 14-day confinement said he expected his father to return home soon.
P Chidambaram has been sent to the same jail as Karti when Karti was arrested last year for his role in securing the foreign funds and allegedly received kickbacks.
"I've gone through the same process last year. We'll go through this process and I hope to have my father back home very quickly. I know what has to be done through the legal process. This is how it works out unfortunately after police custody for investigation, judicial custody follows," he said, NDTV reported.
He also referred to a pre-arrest bail granted to his father by a trial court in Aircel-Maxis case. It involved a Rs 3,500 crore deal with a clearance of 800 million dollar foreign investment in 2006.
He further said that there is no merit in judicial custody for events which happened 11 years ago.
"They are nowhere even close to filing a chargesheet. I'm sure people will contrast the various judicial pronounces that have come out today," he said.
He reiterated saying that both the cases, namely, Aircel-Maxis and INX cases will turn out futile.
"I don't think proper chargesheets will ever be framed. And we'll never have trials. But for political reasons we have to go through this process where vehement critics of the government will be targeted," he said.
P Chidambaram, the former finance minister was arrested on grounds of misusing his position as finance minister in 2007 in INX media case.
