ED moves court to cancel Karti Chidambaram’s interim relief from arrest

The Enforcement Directorate on Monday moved a Delhi court seeking cancellation of the interim relief from arrest granted to Karti Chidambaram, son of the former Finance Minister, P Chidambaram, who has been in news for his allegedly unlawful involvement in the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case for quite some time now.

The Delhi court in its order passed on 7th August 2018 had extended the interim protection from arrest which was granted to Congress leader P Chidambaram and his son, Karti Chidambaram filed by the CBI and the ED for the alleged offences of corruption and money laundering, respectively in the Aircel- Maxis case till 8th October.

P Chidambaram and his son were named in the charge sheet filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the case on July 19. The ED is also probing a separate money-laundering case in the Aircel-Maxis matter and a charge sheet was filed against Karti by the agency on July 13.

The CBI has also been subsequently probing how Congress leader, P Chidambaram, who was the finance minister in 2006, granted a Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approval to a foreign firm when only the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) was empowered to do it. Taking a cue from the CBI FIR the ED has also been probing the involvement of Chidambaram in the Rs 3,500-crore Aircel-Maxis deal and the INX Media case involving Rs 305 crore.

Though being questioned by the ED on several occasions, P Chidambaram and Karti Chidambaram, have continuously denied the allegations levelled against them. Delhi court has sought a response from Karti Chidambaram by 18th September on ED’s plea for custodial interrogation.
