The Supreme Court on Friday said Karti Chidambaram, son of former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, cannot leave the country for now as the court will hold a further hearing on the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) plea on October 4.

The bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said they would hold a further hearing after Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appearing for the CBI and senior counsel Kapil Sibal representing Chidambaram put forth their arguments.

The CBI has moved the top court challenging the Madras High Court order staying its lookout circular against Karti Chidambaram to ensure he does not leave the country.
