New Delhi: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram's 106-day incarceration was vengeful and vindictive, former party chief Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday, hours after the Supreme Court granted bail to the former finance minister in the INX-Media money laundering case.

A three-judge bench, headed by Justice R Banumathi, granted bail to Chidambaram.

 

The 74-year-old Congress leader has been in custody since August 21, when he was arrested by the CBI in the INX-Media corruption case.

The Enforcement Directorate had arrested him on October 16 in the money laundering case.

"Mr P Chidambaram's 106-day incarceration was vengeful and vindictive. I'm glad that the SC has granted him bail. I'm confident that he will be able to prove his innocence in a fair trial," Gandhi said in a tweet.
