Which influential politician did Karti Chidambaram allegedly transfer Rs 1.8 crore to?

Following Karti Chidambaram’s sensational arrest last week by CBI from Chennai, things have taken dramatic turns in the INX media probe. The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is probing the alleged money laundering case against Karti, has claimed that they have found details of him transferring Rs. 1.8 crore to the bank account of an ‘influential’ political figure.

Karti, who is the son of former Union Minister P Chidambaram, had allegedly transferred the said amount from his account in Chennai branch of Royal Bank of Scotland. Without indulging in the name of the recipient, the ED has claimed that the recipient of the said money has discharged very important responsibilities at the Centre in a career spanning decades. Meanwhile, Karti has moved the Supreme Court seeking to quash the summons issued by the ED.

Currently, the CBI is conducting the custodial interrogation of Karti, where he will stay till 6th March. The ED is seeking his custody once his CBI custody ends. As reported in Times of India, Karti allegedly made the transfers from his account (No. 397990) in RBS’s Chennai branch into the account of the senior political leader, raising suspicions of a possible nexus between them.

Meanwhile, social media started speculating on who the ‘influential’ politician who was the alleged recipient of the money was.

The scam-ridden father-son due have been under the scanner for their involvement in obtaining FIPB (Foreign Investment Promotion Board) approvals for INX media after allegedly receiving bribes through Advantage Strategic Consulting Pvt Limited, a firm controlled by Karti Chidambaram. Meanwhile, after the arrest, Karti has been allegedly throwing tantrums, like demanding to travel in business class instead of the economy and ordering food of his choice after being remanded for custody. After denying home food, Karti had allegedly demanded to order food from food apps, like Swiggy and Zomato.
