New Delhi, Aug 21 (IANS) Delhi Police personnel blocked the access to former Union Minister P. Chidambaram’s house even as another team of CBI officials made their way into the building in the posh Jor Bagh area here through the back door.

After the first batch of CBI personnel scaled the wall to enter the premises, another team arrived in a car and drove straight in to take the senior Congress leader in custody.

The otherwise quit neighbourhood saw slogan shouting and a minor scuffle between a small group of Chidamabaram supporters who roughed up a person who allegedly made some unsavoury remarks against the former minister.

Sources said the CBI team were completing the formalities of Chidambaram’s arrest in the presence of his lawyers.
