CBI Spl Court extends custody of Karti

Karti Chidambaram CBI Spl Court extends custody of Karti
Isabel Fisher | 10 March, 2018, 01:50

The CBI said it has a recorded statement of Indrani Mukherjea, accusing Karti Chidambaram of accepting bribe to get the FIPB clearance.

Singhvi also stated that the address raided by the CBI was given by him through an affidavit to the agency on July 17, 2017 and the claim of discovery made by CBI was completely "spurious".

Abhishek Manu Singhvi, representing Karti, lashed out at the CBI saying that the agency was keeping Karti in a cell with guards playing cards till late night, which led to his blood pressure shooting up. P Chidambaram was present during the proceedings, both in the high court and the trial court, while his wife Nalini, also a senior advocate, was there in the trial court.

Karti Chidambaram, on Friday, was again sent to three-day CBI custody by a Delhi court.

He fears that the ED may detain or arrest him as soon as out from the CBI custody since the ED has issued summons to him for the same transaction that prompted the CBI to arrest him at Chennai last week on arrival from London. He also said that CBI was repetitive in its questioning.


The agency is now preparing to confront Karti with his chartered account and co-accused S. Bhaskararaman, who is lodged in Tihar jail in Delhi.

Karti Chidambaram, arrested in the INX Media corruption case, told the special CBI court on Friday that he has been kept awake at night and allowed to sleep only 3-4 hours. The reason for this extension, according to Additional solicitor general Tushar Mehta, is that a CD and few other documents have been found that have relation to the case and will have to bee sent to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory to examine their authenticity.

The Delhi High Court today granted interim relief against arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to Karti Chidambaram, in connection with the INX Media bribery case. He (Karti) is not the only person facing a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. However, the ED is planning to appeal in the Supreme Court against the HC order. It had registered an ECIR, the ED's equivalent of an FIR, against the accused named in the CBI complaint. He was arrested by the CBI on February 28 on the basis of a testimony of INX Media directors Indrani and Peter Mukerjea, alleging that they paid $7 lakh to him on the instructions of his father P Chidamabaram, as quid pro quo for FIPB clearance.

An FIR, filed on May 15 past year, had alleged irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving Rs 305 crore in overseas funds in 2007 when P Chidambaram was Union finance minister.
