CBI Arrests Chidambaram’s son Karti Chidambaram



Big setback for Chidambaram, CBI arrested his son Karti Chidambaram on Wednesday in connection with the INX money-laundering case. The Enforcement Directorate had raided Karti Chidambaram’s properties — one in Delhi and four in Chennai — on January 13. The Directorate had registered the money laundering case against him in May 2017.

Also named in a CBI FIR, along with INX Media and its directors, Peter and Indrani Mukerjea — both accused in the murder of Sheena Bora — and others, Karti Chidambaram is facing a probe for his alleged role in facilitating Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance for INX Media Ltd when his father was the Union Finance Minister.

Karti Chidambaram is alleged to have received Rs 3.5 crore from the Mumbai-based INX Media for helping it get the FIPB clearance when it was run by the Mukerjeas.
