The Congress on Wednesday welcomed the Supreme Court's decision to grant bail to senior party leader P Chidambaram in the INX-Media money laundering case, saying truth finally prevails.

Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, however, said "justice delayed is justice denied", adding, "this should have been granted much earlier".

A three-judge bench, headed by Justice R Banumathi, granted bail to the 74-year-old former Union finance minister, who has been in custody for 105 days since August 21 when he was arrested by the CBI in the INX-Media corruption case. The Enforcement Directorate had arrested him on October 16 in the money-laundering case.
