The apex court bench comprising Justices R Banumathi, AS Bopanna and Hrishikesh Roy pronounced the verdict.

Supreme Court restrains P Chidambaram from giving press interviews or making statements with regard to the case. Chidambaram has also been asked to furnish bail bond of ₹2 lakh plus two sureties of same amount.

Several Congress workers greeted P Chidambaram after he came out of the prison. His son Karti Chidambaram welcomed him as he stepped out of Tihar jail.
