New Delhi: Congress leader P Chidambaram Tuesday discussed with senior advocate Kapil Sibal the situation after Delhi High Court dismissed his anticipatory bail plea in the corruption and money laundering cases related to the INX Media scandal.

Sibal, along with a team of lawyers, is currently exploring possibility of mentioning the appeal against the order in Supreme Court. The discussions are going on in the Supreme Court.
