Skeletons are tumbling out of the closet as Karti Chidambaram was arrested this morning in alleged scam in INX Group, which was owned by Peter and Indrani Mukherjea, over alleged Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) violations. Karti Chidambaram is accused of receiving kickbacks in 2007 to clear foreign investment worth around Rs. 300 crore in INX Media, using the influence of his father, P Chidambaram, the then Union Finance Minister.

As per documents accessed by Times Now, Indrani Mukherjee has claimed that she had met P Chidambaram at North Block in Central Secretariat.

Indrani, who is facing jail for allegedly murdering her daughter Sheena Bora, accused Chidambaram of trying to use his influence to get Indrani to pay bribe to Karti to the tune of 1 million dollars.
