Chidambaram's counsel had earlier contended that it was not a case of taking out money from the country or cheating a bank and instead money has come in and it was not an economic offence, as alleged by the agency.
The 73-year-old Congress leader, who is lodged in Tihar Jail in the INX Media corruption case, has claimed in his petition that the criminal proceedings against him were "mala fide" and borne out of "political vendetta".
The court, while extending Chidambaram's custody, asked the jail superintendent to consider the minister’s plea for a chair and a pillow given his bone pain.
The agency had sent Letters Rogatory to five countries seeking information about the financial transactions of INX group of companies.
Delhi HC dismissed the anticipatory bail pleas, also declining Chidambaram's request to stay the order for three days in order to enable him to move an appeal in the SC.
