Later Wednesday evening a team of about 30 CBI officials reached Chidambaram's residence. The officials knocked the door for a few minutes and after getting no response they climbed up the wall of the residence and entered the former finance minister's premises.
Chidambaram made a dramatic appearance at Congress headquarters earlier this evening, after being untraceable for 30 hours. At the press meet, he made a statement that if given an option to choose between life and liberty, he will choose liberty.
