The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted bail to senior Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media case.

Chidambaram had filed a plea challenging the Delhi High Court verdict denying him bail in the corruption case.

However, the Congress leader continues to be in custody of Enforcement Directorate (ED) and cannot walk free right away.

The relief for Chidambaram came around two months after he was arrested.
