Dramatic scenes were witnessed on Wednesday night as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team scaled the wall of former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram's house in Jor Bagh, minutes after he arrived from the Congress headquarters after addressing a press conference.

A team of CBI officials, led by Deputy Superintendent of Police R. Parthasarthy arrived at Chidambaram house, and after finding the gates locked, some agency officials jumped over the boundary wall to enter inside.

According to CBI officials, a Joint Director level officer also arrived at the residence.

A team of Enforcement Directorate (ED) also followed to arrest the senior Congress leader who was at his house along with a battery of lawyers, including Kapil Sibal and Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

Earlier, Chidamabaram, who surfaced at the Congress headquarters after remaining "missing" for 27 hours, claimed that he will walk with his head held high and wait for the Supreme Court's decision on his plea on Friday.
