The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay a summon order issued by the Enforcement Directorate against Karti Chidambaram in the INX Media money laundering case, after the CBI said he was “not a common criminal” but his plea for quashing the notice was a guise for an anticipatory bail plea.

However, the top court asked Mr. Karti to request the competent authority for postponement of ED summons seeking his appearance on March 1.

A Bench of Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, and Justices Amitava Roy and D.Y. Chandrachud said it would hear the matter on March 6 after senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Mr. Karti, sought time to file a proper application to challenge the ED proceedings.
