Chidambaram takes a dig at CBI for calling him a ‘flight risk’

New Delhi: Former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Sunday ridiculed the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) charge that he was a flight risk.

“I am thrilled to discover that according to some people, I will grow golden wings and fly away to the moon. I hope I will have a safe landing,” his family tweeted on his behalf on Sunday.

A Delhi court on Thursday extended Chidambaram’s judicial custody till October 3 in a corruption case filed by the CBI.
