New Delhi: Congress leader P Chidambaram was arrested on Wednesday by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after interrogating the former Union minister at Delhi's Tihar Jail in connection with the INX Media money laundering case.

Investigators of the central agency, who arrived at the jail around 8:15 am, were present in the premises for about two hours. They briefly grilled Chidambaram and arrested him under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The central agency will now move the court to seek his fresh custody. A team of ED officials who reached Tihar Jail said that they were following procedure after a Delhi court on Tuesday allowed the central agency to interrogate the senior Congress leader in the case.
