The former union minister served as Home Minister of India from November 2008 to July 2012 in UPA government. He inaugurated the CBI headquarter in the presence of then prime minister Manmohan Singh.
Noticeably, Chidambaram, one of the key ministers during ten years of UPA regime, was taken to headquarters of the probe agency after CBI officials scaled the boundary walls of his residence in Jor Bagh on Wednesday night to arrest him in INX Media case.
However, the former minister addressed a press conference just before his arrest and he rejected the charges against him and his son in the INX Media case. Meantime, P Chidambaram got support from Congress supreme leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and she said that they are with Chidambaram in fighting against the truth.
