Karti Chidambaram Grilled For 8 Hours, To Appear Before CBI Again On Aug 28:- In connection with a bribery case involving INX Media, former Union Minister P Chidambaram’s son Karti Chidambaram appeared before the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and left the head quarters after eight hours of questioning.
In this regard, Karti will again be questioned on August 28. To quash the FIR lodged against him in a bribery case, the Madras High Court on Tuesday directed Karti to approach a Delhi High Court. Karti was informed by the Madras HC that he would have to take his petition to the Delhi HC, as the case does not come under the jurisdiction of the Madras HC.
Karti had moved to the court, after the Supreme Court asked him to appear before the CBI in New Delhi, to help the investigating agency with its probe. The Madras HC, earlier in August, had stayed the Look out Circular (LOC) issued against Karti and four others. Later, the apex court had said that it would review the high court order canceling the LOC issued by Foreigner Regional Registration Officer (FRRO).
The CBI conducted raids in regard with a 2007 case, on Chidambaram’s residence, along with 13 other locations in New Delhi, Gurugram, Mumbai and Chandigarh on May 16. The case relates to INX Media, which had allegedly paid bribes to get an FIPB approval. An FIR was filed against Karti, Indrani Mukherjee and Peter Mukerjea, who owned INX media.
