INX media case: Delhi HC judge recuses from hearing Karti’s bail plea

New Delhi [India]: Delhi High Court Justice Indermeet Kaur recused from hearing Karti Chidambaram’s bail plea in connection with the INX media case, on Tuesday.

The matter was referred to another bench.

On March 12, Karti moved the Delhi High Court seeking bail.
