Former Union Minister P Chidambaram did not get interim bail today as a Delhi court granted the CBI one more day of custody. But Mr Chidambaram avoided the possibility of going to Delhi's Tihar Jail as the Supreme Court extended his CBI custody till Thursday. The CBI court will decide tomorrow on whether to grant him bail. The CBI's lawyer, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, argued that he must get mrore time to oppose bail. "The personal liberty of a common man, a rickshaw driver is not less than Chidambaram. Procedure has to be followed," Mr Mehta said.
