New Delhi, Aug 22 (TIWN) Former Finance Minister and senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram was whisked away from the CBI headquarters here on Thursday, hoodwinking a mob and the media gathered at the main entrance.

He was detained at the building for nearly 17 hours for questioning. Chidambaram was to be produced before Special Judge Anil Kumar Kuhad at the Rouse Avenue Court. The main entry gate of the CBI headquarters was barricaded, with a dozen paramilitary personnel flanking it on either side. This was at least since half an hour before Chidambaram was stealthily taken out of the building using a rear entrance. 

Chidambaram had been arrested by the CBI on Wednesday for his complicity in the INX Media case. He was brought to the CBI headquarters near Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium at 10 p.m. The former Union Minister reportedly spent the night in a suite on the ground floor of the CBI building.
