The chit fund scam in West Bengal echoed in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday, with Left and Congress members accusing the Trinamool Congress of looting money of lakhs of investors.
The bench said the issue of Karti Chidambaram visiting abroad is not an "important matter" requiring urgent hearing.
Additional Solicitor General Tusshar Mehta told CBI Special Judge O P Saini, "We have to meet a deadline and he (P Chidambaram) is not cooperating."
The SC said the allegations levelled against senior Enforcement Directorate (ED) official Rajeshwar Singh, who is probing the Aircel-Maxis deal case, were serious and required to be looked into.
Karti was on Friday given bail by the high court in the INX media case.
The special court on December 21 last year acquitted Raja, Kanimozhi and others in the cases registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation and the ED.
The two judgements bear out the well-known adage that, often, courts are courts of law and not courts of justice.
Raja’s letter and Manmohan Singh’s reply to him has now surfaced.
The DMK was a key partner in the UPA-I government from 2004 to 2009, when Raja held the telecom portfolio, and till 2013 in the UPA-II regime.
The court issued production warrants to two accused Karim Morani and Sanjay Chandra for November 7 and asked all accused to be present on the date
